I decided with all the canning I have been doing that pickles would be fun. I think I was momentarily delusional spurred on by a friend. I have canned sweet pickles(cucumber chips), dill pickles, kosher dills and hamburger dills. Most of the recipes come from the Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving which I of course bought at my local Ace Hardware (thanks, Dad). The other recipe comes from a friend's mother. Her pickles are said to be the best. We will have to wait a few weeks and then I will give a verdict. For now, I have to figure a spot for all the jars.
