It's Been A Long Time

Wow, it has been a long time since I've posted on this blog.  But trust me it isn't because things aren't happening. Because they most definitely are. The Market is going wonderfully this year.

 I recently got a question from a Local Harvest Viewer that was wondering about where to get cucumbers to make pickles.  I thought I'd share my response with you...


Or Fresh Start Produce...  927-3373

Remember to use a research based recipe for canning pickles, and don't forget to adjust your processing times for altitude. You can find your altitude here

And you can find research based recipes in the most recent Ball Blue Book or at the National Center for Home Food Preservation site. 
To make sure your pickles don't turn out soft make sure you take a little slice off of each end.  The stem doesn't do well for crisp pickles.  Also the water you use can effect this.  People typically have best luck with hard water.
If you use lime to get your pickles crisp be sure to use as directed in the recipe and get it all rinsed off. 

I hope you find some cukes.
