My other foodie passtime......I make and can my own pickles and relishes.

Green Tomato and Vidalia Onion relish



Bread and Butter Chips



and baby gherkins and wedges...all are of the sweet variety



and I started with cukes from my little container garden







Here it is with the sun tarps up at the beginning of the heat wave.

Sweet. I've tried pickling my own peppers but I can't seem to keep the crunch I like. If I get them pickled, they're to soft. If they're still crunchy, they taste like raw peppers.

My family does bread and butter jalapeños. My thing is making dill pickles (i mix in cucumbers, baby squash, and okra) with some heat to them.

Lady Pam, doesn't just leaving the garlic out work? And why would you want pickles without garlic for anyway?
