Pickles, Pickles, & more Pickles

I absolutely love Bountiful Baskets

If this great service is offered in your area, it is so worth checking out and trying their great produce. 
They offer "baskets" of produce weekly at a fraction of what you would pay in the Grocery Store.
The options change too, so you never know what you are going to get.
Personally, I think that is what is so fun about it.
This time we got...
Potatoes, Broccoli, Tomatoes, Blueberries, Tomatoes, Lettuce, Beans, Cucumbers, Strawberries, and I'm sure there was more but I can't remember it all.

The last time I ordered from them I ordered a case of pickling cucumbers.
(They were the BIGGEST pickling cucumbers I have ever seen!)
But delicious!!!
Normally I don't slice them and throw them in the bottles whole. 
But hence, because of the size, I had to slice them.
Not by hand of course, I took the easy route and ran them through my Salad Shooter.
I don't know if you are like me but I can open a bottle and eat the bottle all by myself, 
and I plan on doing that with these too.

When I got done, I had 3 dozen, that's right 3 dozen Dill Pickles, that looked Oh So Pretty.
Yep, that's all I'm going to be doing with them too for while is looking at them.
I have to wait 6 months until they have "pickled" and are ready eat. 
I hate waiting!!!
I am dying to see what they taste like since I have never sliced them up before.
But Hey, I am very proud of myself that they are all done and on the shelves and that project is done for about 2 years.

(Plus, don't you love that crate?!?  The pickles came in that, now I'm just trying to decide where to put.  It needs to be admired!)


  1. YUM! Those look fantastic. I've never tried my hand at canning pickles but I would love to.

  2. Thanks Jenny! If you'd like I can send you the instruction/recipe. They are super easy and I can do them, ANYBODY can!
    Thanks for stopping!

  3. Looks yum! I've wanted to do this for a long time. I need to try it.


Thanks for the love!
