pickle-fest!

mister and i have been hard at work these past few weeks, preserving food for the winter.  we’ve frozen over a gallon of blueberries, 8 cups of pesto, a half-gallon of tomatoes (from our garden!), and most importantly, pickled A LOT of veggies.  this weekend we opened all of the new ones to give them a try.

from left to right:

bread and butter pickles

hot cumin-pickled summer squash

dilly beans!

spicy carrot pickles

all but the bread-and-butter are from “Canning for a New Generation” by Liana Krissoff. so far all the recipes have been really tasty.

we also have a batch of kosher dills going on the counter, which are coming along quite nicely.  i’ll keep you posted on those!
