I’m growing dill this year in the garden and am planning on trying my hand at some pickles! I’ve got cucumbers too. But I also like other pickled things and just bought a set of Pickl-It jars. Has anyone else tried these out? Right now I’ve got a Euell Gibbons “dill crock” like thing going in the larger jar, with green cherry tomatoes (from the garden), onions (from the garden) , carrots, celery (from the garden), cauliflower (from the farmer’s market), garlic (farmer’s market) and nasturtium buds (garden), red pepper. I did this years ago but somehow have given up the old crock I had so am using the new larger jar with the fancy top.
I’m also trying their dilly carrots too. I had leftover carrots after buying the big bag of organic carrots at Costco to make my favorite carrot and cilantro salad for my mom’s 85th birthday party, which was combined with a 2/3 almost family reunion. (Most of one branch of cousins managed to join us!)
I love pickled anything, via salt or vinegar. Would love some shared recipes here in the comments. I will offer up my Harvard Beets, quick cucumber salad, pickled daikon and carrot (great on sandwiches!), and zucchini refrigerator pickles, a nice zesty recipe!
Note: This is NOT a sponsored post nor did I get a free sample of anything. Just mentioning the Pickl-It jars because they seem very cool, but I’ve not yet eaten anything out of them. Would love to hear if any of you have experience with them, or other containers for pickling. I want to make sauerkraut at least once!
