|My neighbor gave me more tomatoes and I had a few from my garden-so I made some more juice yesterday. I should have done it a few days earlier though-I had to throw quite a few rotten tomatoes out!|
|Isn't my prized watermelon beautiful? Tastes good too!|
|I thought I would share this VERY simple recipe for sour pickles. Mom's been making these forever! This recipe is in the little hand written recipe book that my mom gave me as a bridal shower gift-oh, so many years ago-the one I replicated last year and gave as a Christmas gift for my sisters, my mom (I think?), my daughter, and my niece.|
I've always really loved these pickles and they could not be more simple to make. The dry mustard gives them zing! Oh, yeah-I used zucchini, not cukes because I had no cukes-but I did have zucchini. I just scooped all the seeds out and used the firm outer part. Worked like a charm.
2 Tablespoons of dry mustard
2 Tablespoons of salt
4 Tablespoons of sugar
Put above ingredients in quart jar. Fill with cucumbers (or zucchini) and then with vinegar. Keep in fridge. Make sure the lid is on tight and shake now and then. Enjoy in a few days!
