I love pickles! Yes, I know that I said I love sweets this afternoon and I do love sweets, but I also love me some pickles. I have been very lucky lately to have some free time to do whatever I please and my to do list includes painting and lots of baking and yoga. One of the things on my to do list was to make pickles. A friend of mine sent me a wonderful Washington Post article about making pickles. On my weekly grocery shopping trip this week, I bought all the ingredients and today I made pickles! They were fairly easy to make. First you make a pickling brine and let it sit for about two hours. Then you layer dill and garlic at the bottom of a sterilized mason jar, stuff it with cut up cucumbers and top it off with more dill and jalepenos. Now the hard part begins – waiting for the week while the pickles get pickled. I am really looking forward to opening them up and trying them. Mmmmmmm…….
