I am the Pickle Master

All the yummy ingredients for
pickles and relish
Oh boy did I have fun making pickles this weekend! Wow! And I canned for the first time in my adult life - we canned when I was a child, but I don't remember helping. I was VERY fun. I made bread and butter pickles and zucchini relish - except that I had such a wealth of yellow squash in the garden that I used that instead of zucchini, so I guess I should say I made yellow squash relish. I cannot wait for more things to ripen so that I can 1. eat them and then 2. can them!

The finished product: bread and butter pickles on the left
and yellow squash relish on the right. YUM!!


  1. mmmm fav...gonna do up the Dinosaur BBQ dill ones this weekend...but I just quick set canning bath. They don't last long enough!

  2. I don't like to eat pickles (except relish in tuna salad) but I love making them too. (Well, back in the day - it's been a very long time.)

    Nice work - you ARE the Pickle Master!
