my mom's 2007 bounty

Just have to brag about my mom's food preservation so far this year. She just sent me this photo. Damn. Her pickles are worth about $1 million per jar. That is just an estimate.

Top Row: Dill Pickles.
Second row: Dill Pickles, Bread & Butter Pickles, Dilly Onion Pickles, Sweet Pickled Beets.
Third Row: Rainer & Bing Cherries, Spicey Dilly Beans, Salsa, Beet Syrup.

Have you or your mother ever made pickled watermelon rind? They are sweet, rather than sour. My grandmother used to make them every summer. (I made them 3 years ago.)

PS: My kids are 10, 8, 6, 5, 2 and 11 months

How wonderful! I'm just trying canning myself for the first time.

I'm sure I'll be back to ask advice.

How long did it take her to do all of that?

I did the dilly onion pickles mid July and finished up with the dilly beans on August 27th. I ordered 30 lbs. of tomatoes to make the salsa and just picked them up August 18th. I have had pickled watermelon rind...it is good!

You all are invited for dinner!
