Ooooh, that sounds so wonderful. Would you believe I have never tasted homemade pickles? I feel deprived...gotta find someone who makes them now. Thanks for the interesting history, too--I'll bet not many folks know that!

We make pickles all the time. Never have figured out the hot water bath for pickles. We always use the dark vinegar, so maybe that;'s the difference. Never heard of anyone dieing from a pickle!
Bread & Butter, Dill, Watermelon, & Beet pickles are my favorite, in that order.

Gosh, I used to make pickles, not to eat next year but to eat right away. They were yummy, too. I went to the Farmer's Market yesterday but didn't have time to cook what I bought... hmmmmm. Maybe...

Thanks Mel, it gave me a good feeling looking at the pictures.. Just thinking about the pickles my grandma used to make. Hot summer days, long ago.

Thanks ya'll! It was fun to write, and fun to research. I've been known to make pickles from just about any fresh produce...whatever's handy, I just throw in the brine...they all come out good.

Great article, thank you! I have not yet tried the hot water bath either, hubby and I just started a few weeks ago with simple refrigerator pickle recipes. So many inexpensive cucumbers at the Farmer's Market this time of year!
