Above is my Aunt Carolyn and below is my Aunt D. They are the two best aunts anyone could ask for.
The cucumbers were used to make pickles and relish.
Above are the spices that we boiled to pack the pickles and relish. We added some vegetables to the spices as you can see on the right. We boiled this down and then packed our jars.
The above left picture is before we put the pickling spices and liquid into the jar and the picture on the right shows the jar once it is filled.
One of the last things we made was salsa. This involved prepping some vegetables.
Once the salsa was finished we were basically done canning. It was two full days of hard but satisfying work. The picture I took of all the jars lined up does not do justice to how pretty it was to look at in person.
