Nice Smurfy! My cukes have a way to go. Our spring was a lot later down here this year. Do you use jalapenos? Do you put a clove or two of garlic in the jar too?

the peppers are a thia chili pepper, and yes i put 4-5 pieces of garlic in each jar along with sliced onions!!!!!!!!! i used to put 6 peppers in but in my older age that got to be to much so i cut it back to 4. i would think Jalepenos would work though!!!!!

Nothing better then homemade pickles. We did 84 quarts last year but the kids didn't eat all of them so we are going to skip a year.

i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁:grin: that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite.
