Canning

Funny how canning is such a mystery for people. Ive been canning for almost 27 years & NEVER had any trouble! It is such an easy process as long as you follow the steps! I've canned fruit, vegetables including home made sauerkraut, which is a process all by itself! But jam is the one I love to make the most. Such a great way to save the taste of summer in a jar. Jam is always welcome as a gift & a must on our holiday tables. My next venture will be home made Dill Pickles from cukes that my daughter is growing her garden. I must admit I never tried these before & yet Dill Pickles are one of our favorites and there is always a jar in my frig. So why didn't I try "doing up" as canning is referred to here in Dutch Country? I have no idea but I can't wait for those cukes to grow so I can do up a batch! Anybody have a favorite pickle recipe ? I would LOVE ONE !
