Good Morning Friends! We had such a wonderful time last week with the blog hop and I learned so much from each and everyone of you. I loved taking the time to read each and every one of your posts. My favorite part learning new things from you. Many people wanted an update on how my first experience went with the pickling that I talked about last week.
I had a "pickle" of a time finding canning jars. I drove to at least three different stores here on Cape Cod without any luck. Finally, on the fourth store I had luck except they only had smaller pint size jars instead of the quart size that I was needed. So, I picked those up and just made smaller batches.
I made the Kimchi first, as the cabbage had to soak in the brine for at least two hours. After I prepped the rest of the ingredients for the Kimchi, I moved onto the pickles. Making the pickles was my favorite part!
The pickles were super easy and very fast to make. I ended up making three jars of pickles and sharing a jar with my neighbor. After three days of resting, we opened them and took our first bite. Yum!!! They are fabulous. So fabulous that we blew through the first two jars and I made some more last night. My husband says that we are never buying store bought pickles again. This weekend, we will try the Kimchi. The pickling process takes a bit longer but the jars sure look pretty. I hope it is as good as the pickles. This past week I tried something new. I was inspired by so many of you. I just have one question, how can you wait so long to taste all of the wonderful things that pickle and can?
