There is nothing better than a jar of homemade pickles.Every summer during the month of June, it’s pickling time in Peggy’s kitchen. It has truly become a family effort and is a fun filled day of washing, packing and lots of visiting. My recipe has trickled down from my Aunt’s mother-in-law. So for 60 something years I’ve been eating the same dill pickles. We also make bread and butter pickles and have used that same recipe as well. This year we made 100 quarts and they will be enjoyed by all the family as well as special gifts to friends. This is my way of keeping some of my German heritage and spending time with my family. I have no doubt that my children will carry on the legacy of this special family gathering. http://ow.ly/i/IYHN http://ow.ly/i/IYIt http://ow.ly/i/IYJh http://ow.ly/i/IYJU http://ow.ly/i/IYKD http://ow.ly/i/IYLB
