    Bride said it is time to can pickles.... get some garlic from the shed.... OK dear.....  Some time back one of our esteemed members posted a trick way to peel garlic....  Since I have lots of garlic and we peel, slice and dry it, I thought it was worth remembering....  Well, peeling garlic for dills is a pain and I gave his method a try....

    First in a pair of large mated SS bowls....


    That worked well... But the bowls were too heavy to shake very rapidly..... So I switched to

    2 smaller bowls..... 


    The increased shake speed worked much better.... That bowl of peeled garlic took maybe 

    1 minute of shaking......  I AM IMPRESSED.....  so many times you get tips that are suspect....

    Not this tip.....  IT WORKS VERY WELL.......  

    Pickling Cukes getting ready.......


    They are in ice water now.....  Time to go to the store.....  Bride is missing ingredients.....  

    thanks for looking....   Who was it that posted the Garlic Peeling Tip ????  I know I have been told twice......

    At least I remembered the tip.......(CRS again)

    Fess up..... take credit for the tip.....

    Gotta love pickle season. I do a lot of okra and garlic & jalapeno's. I gotta try that garlic trick.

    Craig, thanks for the garlic peeling tip.....  I'm gonna remember that now !!!

    Thai Reds for a little heat.......   


    Garlic from the garden........  Nicely and easily peeled thanks to FPNMF (Craig) .....


    Now for the wait......


    If you have a few extra cukes, slice 'em and stuff 'em in a jar.....  


    The recipe Bride uses...... It was doubled for this batch, 7 quarts....  

    Distilled water.............................   6 C

    Heinz Vinegar.............................   3 C

    Pickling Salt .............................  1/2 C

    Thai Reds.....................................  2 per Qt

    Garlic........................................... lots

    Dill Seed ..................................... 1 tsp

    Dill Weed...................................... 1/2 tsp

    Pre sterilize jars, bands and lids.....

    Water, vinegar and salt, bring to boil .....  add to the jars that have the other ingredients in them along

    with the cukes......   cover the cukes with the hot brine..... Install lids and bands, finger tip snug.... Place jars in water bath and hold at 

    185 deg F for 15 minutes.... set aside to cool.....  refrigerate after opening....  

    We like this recipe.... has more vinegar than some....  there are thousands of different ingredient ratios.....  vinegar/water ratios....   more vinegar can be added..... acidity and salt is important to stop bacterial growth....   Dave
