Palm Shadows

The shadow of the palm water fountain over at Starvaggi's Splash Zone.
I find the shadows of this  water fountain very pretty as every water has it's own  shadows.
Have a great weekend everyone.

  8. Here's how I make my pickles:
    note:if this doesn't come over well email me your emnail address and I will resend

    Kathe's Famous Hot Dill PIckles

    for 2 qts for 6 qts

    1 cup white vinegar 1 qt white vinegar

    3 cups water 2 qt water

    1/4 cup pickling salt 1/2 cup pickling salt

    alum alum

    jalepenos,dried red chilies,garlic,fresh dill

    grape leaves are optional

    Pickle rules:

    wash and pick over pickles-make sure no squash ends remain and that there are NO soft

    spots. I actually sort them by size while cleaning for ease of packing.

    I buy my pickling cukes the same day I make the pickles. Highly perishable.

    25# of cukes makes appx 24 qts depending on how big the cukes are. I use wide mouth jars if available as they are easier to pack. Use kosher or pickling salt because otherwise the brine will be cloudy. Make sure the white vinegar is at least 5% acidity.

    Packing rules:

    Inside each qt jar add 1 pinch alum, 1 head dill, 2 cloves garlic at least,

    1 dried red pepper,and 1 jalapeno cut open to allow seeds contact with brine.

    You can also put a fresh grape leaf on the inside of the glass for decoration.

    (the grape leaf also supposedly helps keep the pickles crisp)

    Processing rules:

    If you are making more than 6 qts at a time you will need to

    make a double batch of the 6 qt brine to begin with. Most canners

    hold 7 qts-so this makes sense. Mix brine mixture and bring to a full boil.

    Fill canning pot with cold water.

    Carefully add boiling brine to each jar up to 1 inch of top of jar.


    wipe each jar and place lid and screw top on securely

    process in water bath on cold start in the covered pot for 20 minutes only

    do not allow to boil. The pickles will be ready in 4-6weeks.

    If for some reason all the jars do not seal-fear not. Just simply store in

    the fridge for 4-6 weeks and eat them first-we haven't had a problem yet!

    Enjoy! xoxo Kathe
