I belong to a produce co-op, which is a lot of fun and gets more fruits and veggies into our house. I never know what we'll be getting. Most of the fruit in the Fruits of the Forest pie came from the food co-op, so you can see that we get some nice variety. Last week my basket included a bunch of cucumbers. My family is not a big cuke eating crowd so I decided to try my hand at making some pickles for the first time. I had to go out and buy some jars, and figured I'd get 2 or 3 jars of pickles out of this pile of cucumbers. I chose a recipe for sliced sandwich pickles that could be done within an hour...that's what fits into my schedule. Well, somehow once they are sliced the cukes sort of shrunk or something - and they all fit into ONE pint jar! I went ahead and made the liquid and poured it in the jar and processed that lonely jar. My first pickles! I don't know what they'll taste like but they look kind of nice, and were easy to make.
