Dill Pickle Recipe: This recipe was given to me by a friends mother quite a few years ago. I really like them.

Anne's Dill Pickles

3 1/2 Tbsps. Pickling Salt
5 cups water
4 Heads Dill
5 Cloves Garlic
1/2 tsp peppercorns
Cucumbers to fill 2 - Quart Jars

Combine salt, spices and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cool. Wash and drain cucumbers. Put the heads of Dill at the bottom of each jar. Pack Cucumbers into jars, add Garlic and remaining Dill.
Add brine to within 1" of the top of jars. Adjust cap, using rubber ring and zinc caps. Store in dry, cool place for 3 Weeks before using.

*** i sit the jars on kitchen counter (out of direct light) for 3 Weeks, until the
Dills finish "Working". Can put a saucer on top as lid.
Every morning I skim off the top and top with some extra brine (extra brine kept in fridge).
Store when finished in the fridge.

**i usually use a large 5 Quart jar I have, instead of 2 jars.

TalkingBlackberry wine memories

Oh my, Cathy!
What a wonderful memory your post just stirred for me.
My Grandfather used to make his own wines from the fruits he grew, and the very first tiny sip of wine I was ever allowed to taste was his homemade blackberry wine.

Now I have a case of the happy, warm & fuzzies - Thank you

Glad I could cheer you up. That was my first wine as well. We helped thoughout the whole process. It is such a great memory! I can't wait to get enough blackberries to try my hand @making it on my own. So far I have 2 small bushes, 1 a yr old, the other 2yr I will try to propagate them this winter to have more baby plants come spring. (Has anyone done this before? If, so what's the eaisiest / best method that worked for you)? I was just gonna tey rooting branch cuttings in water, and a few in dirt to see which way works best.

When it was time to bottle up the wine, I was the designated siphoner, (best part about making it). We made, homemade pies, jams &jellies, we collected quite a few free tons of blackberries. Anywhere, mom say a blackberry bush, we stopped & picked. Once, we even got run home by the sherief, just outside our property line. BC of escaped convicts. When ran home, locked ourselves in the house.
