After all the problems with trying to find pickling lime with no success, I have finished a batch of sweet pickles. (8 pints) I am praying the Pickle Crisp will work as well as old fashion pickling lime. It took three days to make these pickles - soak in lime one day, soak in syrup one day and then pack and process the jars the last day.
Here is a sample of the final product along with a sample of some peach jam that I made. I haven't tasted the pickles yet but the jam is deeeelicious - especially with a hot biscuit.
I have been reading the Mason Dixon KAL for several weeks and have been so envious of all the projects various people have shared. I finally broke down and purchased the book, Mason Dixon Knitting. Here is the first first dishcloth (or as MD calls it - warshrag) I have knitted from this book.
Here is the beginnings of my second dishcloth. I am using left over cotton and plan to have pink and blue strips instead of the same color throughout the cloth.
