Those pickles look great. Do you grow your own cucumbers? I'm going to guess you purchased them because that's allot of jars at one time. I see a pepper in the jars, so what's your secret recipe.

Just looking at those jars makes my mouth water!! I agree, the peppers are a must. I just did my first ever batch last weekend. I only did a dozen pints. My bro-in-law said I should wait a couple of weeks before I open one but I couln't wait. They already tase damn good.Do you soak your cukes first in brine or do you just pour in your recipe and process? Slough House is awesome for produce. I cut their corn off the cob raw and freeze a couple gallons for Thanksgiving.

You may want to consider blanching that corn for a few minutes and then cutting it off the cob. The blanching process stops the process of turning from sugar to starch, which is the process that makes corn taste old. My mother, years ago, would harvest from the garden, hundreds of ears of corn. She always did this with all the corn and froze it. Had lots and lots of corn for the whole family all year long. Man, I still remember that stuff. Thanks for the memory. She died in 1980, so they are old memories.

I don't know what is is about that corn. Maybe the high sugar content. I have done it this way for years and the results are fine. I recently spoke to a home (corn) grower that blanches theirs, but they leave the ears on the stalk until the silk is good and dry and they complain about mixed results. I don't think they wait that long to harvest at Slough House. Maybe the key. I don't know.
