More pickles

Two weekends ago, I set aside an afternoon for harvesting and pickling.

I know that pickled food isn’t exactly “healthy” – you’re cooking out most of the nutrients from the fruit in the water bath. However, home canned pickles are a much more sensible treat than potato chips, and we enjoy eating them all winter long.

I ended up with quite a haul:

Yum. I’ll have one more round of bush beans before the cold weather comes, and should end up with a few more pints worth to pickle. Not only will we have enough to snack on, but I should be able to give some as gifts.
