Here is the sweet pickles. J changed the water and added alum to them today
AND the DILL PICKLESI made dill pickles today, only 5 quarts but that was all the dill I had. . . Here's how I did it. . .
Wipe the rim of the jar off and top with a flat that you boiled for about a minute and screw on the ring.
Put them in your hot boiling water and bathe them for 15 minutes. Take them out and start listening for the pops.
Here is the ingredient list. I think the solution will make about 8-10 quart jars of pickles. For each jar you need 3 grape leaves, 1 clove garlic, one jalapeno, 1 stem of dill, and enough cucs to pack in the jar.
These pickles have a nice bite to them that is a little on the hot side but they are so good!
1 quart apple cider vinegar
3 quarts water
1 cup salt
