These are the "fruits" of my Saturday labor. Pickles are in and I found a new recipe I wanted to try. The funny thing is, while at the Farmers Market, I was talking to the farmer and he said "if you want crispy pickles, wash them on gentle cycle in cold water in your washing machine" and several other customers agreed. Sooooo---that is what we did. I had to try it and they came out really scrubby clean. Soaked them for 2 hours in icy cold water and then put them into jars----18 jars of them! Next week-----green beans.
