Pickling...A Lot

We were blessed with a LOT of cucumbers from our vegetable garden this year.  I've made cucumber salads, gave them to family & friends and eaten most of them sliced along side our meals.  So after my last harvest I was left with over 20 cucumbers.  So I decided to do some pickling...and it was FUN :)!


I used a variation of this recipe (added less sugar and a ton of bell peppers and onions).

First do a lot of slicing.  Remember I had 20 cucumbers to go through...


A lot of other yummy stuff like bell peppers, onions and garlic.

 
Then I salted the pickles, drained it (after 3 hours)...

 
Then poured in the prepared pickles mixture (with the lowered sugar content).

 
Voila! Seven bottles of pickles ready to refrigerate and enough to last for months...and months :)
