Spicy Pickles!

Dill pickles with a little heat from jalapenos and a little sweet from mini peppers … throw in fresh dill and carrot slices … saying a prayer that it tastes as good as the expectations we have for set for these jars!  🙂

We used the recipe for ‘Quick Kosher Dills’ from Canning For a New Generation as a base guide, I love that book and was happy to try something else from it.  Did you know that adding fresh grape leaves to the jars helps to add crispness to the cucumbers?  If only we had some grape leaves to help ensure crisp veggies!

We … Amber (a sweet ER RN) and I spent a couple night shifts eating spicy dill pickles and hence concocted the plan to make our own.  A quick Costco trip for produce, ‘Trampled By Turtles’ playing on pandora and we were up to our elbows in cucumbers and peppers!

The finished product, including pickled onions and cucumber spears as a trial test:
