I wish I wasn't still trying to master not burning toast, I would give some pickles a try and hope they looked half as good as yours! They look delicious.

Those pickles do look good how long did it take for you to get all that done?

Thanks everyone !

Now the question is just how soon is too soon to try them . I have one very impatient household . :lol: mainly the husband . ;-)

All but a couple snapped so they went in the fridge to finish up and we will eat them first . I also screwed up a batch of brine so 3 jars have half as much vinegar than what was called for so do not know how crappy those will taste . My nephew called me crying that he wanted to come back to live with us , I had just dropped him off the day before . Broke my heart to hear an 11 year old little boy so unhappy being at home , was hard to concentrate on what I was doing . :frowns: Picked him up last night and so he is back here with us , he is one happy little boy . :D

If you should find there is about 15 jars missing ... It was me I wanted to taste them to make sure they are safe for you and your family to enjoy the rest ... :lol2:
