Spicy Dill Pickles with Peppers and Garlic

Yesterday I made my second batch of pickles for the year. I'm getting a lot of pickling cucumbers from the garden right now. This time I added some garlic cloves, spices, and pepper strips to each jar, including a sliced whole small hot green pepper. I wound up with a total of 27 quarts' worth, and it took most of the day. I haven't tasted them yet, but they look pretty good. Sheba (aka "Boo-Boo") investigated the jars before I stored them away. (click pictures to enlarge)


  1. Those look yummy. How are your bees doing in this crazy weather?

  2. They are ok. No honey to spare and take for myself, but I did a bunch of splitting and made 6 hives from two i started with. Those all seem to be ok and they have new queens they made themsleves, but winter will tell.
