The canning challeng met!
I will have to wait 2 weeks to try the pickled green beans, to let the flavors meld. If they're good, I hope to make a lot more...we love them here and my sisters do, too. The recipe for the cucumber pickles suggested waiting 6 weeks (6 weeks???) for full flavor appreciation...I just might have to dive into a jar before that....besides, I need to know if they are good enough to make again, right?
Trying to live sustainably in my new tiny hobby farm in the Appalachia foothills... 2 donkeys,lotsa chickens, a dog and a cat. And a 4-wheeler WHEEE! Goats are next once we get more goat-proof fencing LOL! Also some bits of cooking, political commentary, and microbiology. Varied interests make for an intriguing mind :)
