Third Pickle Round (2010)

We’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pickle recipe. Since I managed to find more small pickling cucs at the Farmer’s Market last weekend I gave another recipe a try. I ended up buying 1 3/4 lbs of very small cucumbers and using Food in Jar’s Garlic Dill Pickles recipe (http://www.foodinjars.com/2009/08/garlic-dill-pickles/) I made 5 pints of pickles. I actually reduced the brine by 3/4 and that made almost the perfect amount for my 5 jars with just a tad leftover. It is so nice to not frantically be making a 2nd small batch of brine to fill that last jar.

How many jars of pickles do I have now?
-5 pints cucumber garlic-dills
-2 pints sweet & spiced beets
-3 pints bread & butter zucchinis
-3 pints dilly beans
-2 quarts refrigerator dill cucumbers

and hopefully by the end of the day 2 pints (or halfpints) of sweet & spiced pear pickles
