Today, I picked some more raspberries before coming back in and got started canning pickles with my mom.
Today we got 19 quarts of pickles made today.
The recipe we used was one my grandma had gotten from one of the ladies in the church she was Pastors wife of in Minneapolis. My mom got a copy of my grandma’s cook book that she has put together for her Wedding, and I got the original cookbook my grandma made herself when my Grandpa passed away. (My grandma passed away before my grandpa).
I had started “helping” my mom can pickles when I was little by helping stuff jars, so I grew helping can, and watching. Now that I am an adult working around the kitchen and canning is second nature to me.
What Canning, Homemaking and urban Homesteading is to me, is what Algebra is to those who get it.
