So by the time I finished canning dill pickles last evening it looked like the Gedney Pickle Factory had exploded in my kitchen. I did wind up with 30 pints of pickles, so it was well worth it. For those interested in my dill pickle recipe, I have to admit that I cheat. I have a long history of making lousy tasting dill pickles from scratch. So now it is Mrs. Wages Dill Pickle Mix all the way.
When the last jar was cooling on my kitchen table I decided that the Clean Kitchen Police weren't likely to come knocking on my door, so I relaxed for an hour or so and called it a night. So now I am off, scoop shovel in hand, to see if I can find my kitchen counters and table top. Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it. :)
