April FreemanThis is the time of year when I am frantically scurrying around to try to preserve as much fresh food as I can for the winter. Buying really good food is expensive nowadays, and I’ve read enough about the nutritional value of organically grown foods versus conventionally grown food that I try to put up as much food as I can.

Right now, the cucumbers are beginning to come in.

Oddly, no one in our family likes cucumbers fresh. Not even a little.

However, they do adore pickles. And, more specifically, they adore MY pickles. Strangely, I don’t care for pickles in any form. But I like to feed my family, so I’ve learned to make pickles for them. By the way, only dill pickles will do. Sweet pickles are unacceptable to my crew.

Here’s my recipe for dill pickles. This recipe is a favorite because I can scale it depending upon the number of cukes that are ready in the garden.
