    Here's my first go round at pickles, all from our first year garden, minus the dill. Gonna be hard not to tear into them.

    Every year I make 15 to 20 gallons of pickled mango. The past few years I have at least one of my daughters playing in a soccer tourney on the mainland and this helps pay for the expenses.

    2 quart jars
    10-14 cloves garlic
    6 teaspoons kosher salt
    Couple sprigs fresh dill per jar
    1/2 teaspoon celery seed per jar
    1/2 teaspoon mustard seed per jar
    1/2 teaspoon peppercorn per jar
    2 cups white vinegar
    4 cups water
    I used cucumbers, jalapeños, beans, from my garden, and added carrots, green onion, and some spicy chili from friends garden.

    Boil the 4 cups water, add garlic and simmer for 5 mins. Add salt and vinegar and bring back to boil until salt is dissolved. Remove from heat
    In quart jars, put dill, and seeds and peppercorns in bottom of jar, spoon out the garlic and divide between the 2 jars. Stuff jars with veggies nice and tight.
    Bring brine back to boil and cover veggies to the top. Pit kids on and when they are cool, put in fridge. Ready in 2 weeks, better longer. Makes 2 quarts
