Laurie !!!!! DO WE HAVE PICKLES?
We belong to a CSA ( Community Supported Agriculture ) My daughter picks up our share of fruits and vegetables every week.
Plus there are cukes of various sizes that are almost free.
She has been pickling for several days,I'm sure I counted 12 quart jars of my grandmothers "Sweet Bread and Butter " pickles yesterday alone.
Sarah says she thinks she canned close to 20 quarts.

Pretty banner, Jo Ann. Thumbs up

If it's not a family secret, could you please share your grandma's "Sweet Bread n Butter" recipe/method?
We love pickles. Smiling
