Until now, I never...
Made Dill Pickle Slices

I have been wanting to try to make my own pickles for a long time, so this year I decided to plant pickling cucumbers in my garden.  Unfortunately they didn’t do that great.  I planted them next to nasturtiums that got some icky bug on them, and those bugs liked my cucumber flowers as well.  Darn them.

But I did get two very nice cucumbers, which isn’t a lot to make pickles with, but I was determined to try anyway.  So I read up on the process, and decided I’d follow this one since the processing time was less, which seemed to me would make the pickles crispier.  I haven’t tried them yet (I need to wait a few weeks) but they looks very pretty in their jars, sitting on top of my fridge.
