Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
I sligthly bungled this recipe on my first time making pickles-- (used pint jars instead of quarts and still processed the 15 minutes, and my pickling cukes were on the ripe side) They still turned out reasonably good! They are fairly crisp and the taste is great. These things I think helped: I cut off the blossom end completely (1/4 inch or more) and scrubbed each one very well with terry cloth wash cloth. Also, I kept my jars hot in a 250 degree oven. They had a 5 hour bath in a scrubbed cooler with two bags of commercial ice and a gallon or so of water. They were COLD! I think with them being that cold, you need to hot water bathe them a bit because they cold cukes will cool down your hot brine a bit too much to get a good seal. Checked with my very experienced neighbor...she swears by a 5 minute very strong boiling bath (starting with time they reach a boil again after putting them in). Her pickles are always crunchy and she has never made anyone sick! Good luck and try to buy local!

Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Easy, quick and good! I followed other reviewers and patted out (with my 2 year old) pat, pat pat....they turned out great. We got around 17 biscuits because we patted a little thinner than 1/2 inch. Used a 1/2 pint canning jar to cut out.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Big hit, it got cleaned out right away at our St. Patty's day gathering. I did not change the recipe a bit. It was easy and good!
