  I expected kitchen talk from Kevin and Superslickie as those two are as dainty as them come.

 The rest of you have me concerned.

Well...I finally finished the last item of my pickling list for this year.
I got the last of the field cukes at Clems and we cleaned out the cucumber garden yesterday. Everything and anything was fair game when it comes to picking the last of the garden cukes !
... we had em 12 inches long and 4 inches in diameter, and some that were big as hens eggs...lmao....butttt....they were all utilized and felt the knife.
My sister and I spent most of the day peeling, slicing and dicing. Started at 7AM....finished and DONE at 2PM. We did two large batches ((three for any normal pickler...lmao))....we got a little over 3 cases out of it......31 - 500 ml bottles....3 - 1 Liter bottles.

 

...I mentioned to her "Thank Gawwd" we were finally done...she gave me one of these ;) ;)...whaddya say we do another batch of beets...I got half mine gone al ready :o.  I checked my pantry....GD IT !!..Apparently I only have 7 bottles left too and there hasn't been a friggen flurry yet !!

...so, by the sounds of it...if Friday brings rain...we'll be bottling beets again... ^_^

Now the family is happy

LoL Kevin!

 

All I have left to do are my beets.

 

Tried pickling my jalapenos, to use on nachos and the like. Holy smokes did they turn out good.

 

All the fixins (except pickled beets) are ready, so now it is time to get some venison to go with them.

 

Enjoy!

Not pickles, but a friend grew hot peppers this year. Little trade netted me enough peppers to make homemade hot pepper sauce. Anybody else ever do this? Looking forward to having it on pasta.

That's something I've never tried ....or any of that kind of hot pepper sauce stuff. I certainly love it tho. Love my Tobasco, there's always a bottle in my spice rack. Aaaand every now and then, a bottle of franks hot sauce. No one else here cares for it too much though.

 

ALW....how did you do yours ??... whole,.. crushed up...diced up ?? Was it a handed down recipe or something on line ? Sounds interesting.  May be something I might try to grow next year.

Anything with cream cheese HAS to be good...lol.....Have you guys ever had it on pork roast or baked ham ?? Heard that it was delicious on them. 
 
Tim...I've seen that recipe in my Bernardin canning book. Is that the one she uses?? ..there's a few of those hot type jellies and spreads in there that look good. Something I might have to give a go when next season arrives.

I had 4 jalapeno plants, planted 2 each to a container, and we had quite a few peppers. They definitely get hotter as they mature on the plant too. Grew one cayenne pepper plant too. It was slower, but still produced some nice, red, hot chillies.

 

We sliced them into 1/4" rings, leaving the seeds and membrane in for heat. Made a brine (off 'net) using 1C vinegar, 1C water, 2T sugar and 1T pickling salt. Sterilized the bottles (250ml) packed them with sliced peppers and a clove of garlic; covered with hot brine and processed in a water bath for 10min. They turned out really good. Like you'd buy bottled for topping nachos, etc.

 

Never thought of hot pepper jelly, but I think we'll try that for sure, as I plan to try growing several different pepper varieties next season. Maybe smoke some jalapenos to make chipotles, and then can those too.
