I've got 2 jars of pickles in the fridge right now that should be ready tonight. Nobody at my house is a big fan of sweet pickles so I left out the pickling spice. I added a little extra dill in it's place. They look fantastic and smell even better.

Reinhard the nice thing about it is that you can scale it to how many pickles (or jars) you have, whichever is the limiting factor. the 1 cup vinegar/2 cups water fills 2 quart jars or so depending on how tight you pack em with cukes.

You can also leave the cukes whole, or halve em, or quarter them, which will vary the number that fit in one jar.

Yep, it is far from exact. Sometimes I slice them in chips, sometimes, spears, and whole if they are small enough. Chipes fill the jars best which also means less liquid is needed... crazy

When im making the brine, I typically go heavy. If I have too much im only throwing away pennies in vinegar and salt...

Yepper... Fill the jars with the goodies and pour on the liquid after it cools. Plop em in the fridge and try and wait 2-3 days..

    • Try going over to this thread. Rock & Edibles-Agates-Fossils-Artifacts-Mushrooms-Ginseng-Gems-etc. There is some discussion taking place under Morels' 2018 already.
    • Guys and Gals, I have searched high and low and have found none at all this spring.  Anyone have an success.  I am guessing it is too dry.  Will they still pop?  Any advise? "Set the Hook", Flash  
    • Wow, my spots are way behind this year. Had hoped to find a bunch before this coming long weekend for a big family Walleye and Morel fry but have only found 5 small grays so far. Just not seeing the ground cover growing very much yet and have saw no other types of mushrooms which seem to grow first pop up yet. This is a very late year so far.
    • No, shes not but on a paper thin rotted floor your kitty would fall through. I can see why she worried.  I didn't because it wasn't on my side!!
    • Yep, OTC. I wouldn't mind seeing some on beds. Seems like I usually get there just as the largemouth are wrapping up.
    • I have a group of bachelor drakes on the pond this year.  The pond water level is high so there is flooded timber. A great combo for photography.                                  
    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
