All About Pickles!

Do you have an abundance of cucumbers and zucchini from the end of year harvest? I know that I always end up with way more than I know what to do with. So this article is ALL about pickles! 

What better way to celebrate a pickling party than to give you an article with all of the wonderful recipes we have used and loved over the years?

Now, you can really pickle just about anything. I love to have a variety sitting on my shelves. I love even more to be able to gift beautiful jars of pickled goods to friends and family.

When we have gatherings, being able to bring up a jar of my homemade pickles to put out, or two, is so rewarding and tasty!

Pickled Green Beans AKA Dilly Beans 

The pickling party doesn’t have to stop at cucumbers and zucchini. One of the greatest things about pickling is you can pickle a HUGE variety of things and they all taste incredible. One of my favorites is a good ol’ fashion dilly bean. They are one of my favorite canned garden snacks!

Pickled Beets

I am a big time beet lover. They are one of those things that you either love or hate. For me, roasting them is my favorite. But I do love them fresh and I really love them pickled as well. I guess just give me a beet and I’ll be a happy gal.
