Dave and Julia were driving along River Road in Puyallup yesterday when Dave suddenly had the urge to make pickles, so he swung into the Duris Cucumber Farm and bought all the ingredients, including 100 cute cukes ...
... and a big batch of dill.
They stuffed a few dozen jars with grape leafs, dill, garlic, onion, pickling salt, mustard seed, peppercorns, alum, hot peppers (for Dave's jars), sweet red pepper and cucumbers. Next came the apple cider and water, then the lids. After curing 4-6 weeks in the fridge, we'll have crispy fresh dill pickles to last us through the winter.
Have a colorful day
