|They just look so pale as dill pickles.|
Then I made bread & butter pickles with them. I used the "British variation" of the Traditional Bread and Butter Pickles in the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. (pg. 303) The white pickles in the brown pickling mixture was pretty!

A patient of Rick's gave him some started cucumbers this spring. I made some sweet pickle relish out of them. 3/4 of the way through chopping all the onions ( no mascara left!), peppers, and cucumbers; I remembered the "chopping tip" we learned at the Master Food Preserver class. This was a tip for the dehydrating part. --- Put the veggie you need to chop in the blender (cut in big chunks) and fill the blender 3/4 full with water. Now pulse it a couple of times. Pour everything into a strainer, and let it drain a bit. It's faster and quicker to clean up than the food processor. You now have perfect size chopped veggies for the dehydrator. It sure would have worked for my relish too!
|I canned the sweet pickle relish in small|
jars. The perfect size for egg salad etc.
