Trying to replicate...

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE these scrumptious pickles, I discovered several years ago. Food Tiger (Greers) stopped selling them. The only place I have found them is at a Piggly Wiggly about 40 miles away---they are SCARCE. I buy a couple of jars when I go there, but they don't last long. They are so good on roast beef po' boys, in potato salad, and just on the side with a meal. I could order them online, but it gets rather expensive with the high shipping costs....SO??? I'm trying to figure out a similar recipe!! I've come close to replicating the recipe, but I don't think anything could be better than the original! They are truly addictive! A mixture of sweet and spicy, dill and garlic...Mmmmm Anyway, I have an old label recipe I've used for years, Lime Pickles... and I add a bit of dill, peppers, and garlic....And like I said, "It is close"...RECIPE Later...Back to pickling! I have my pickles sliced and ready to start soaking...

And I'm making Zucchini Fries in a buttermilk batter for supper.

Tonight we'll be having:

  • venison meatloaf
  • turnips
  • zucchini fries
  • baked sweet potatoes
  • corn bread

Also: Last night we ground up about 20 pounds of venison, with beef fat trimmings. For supper we had---you guessed it:

  • venison/hamburger steaks
  • rice
  • gravy
  • green baby lima beans
  • blackberry cobbler

I made 60 hamburger patties which I froze on 2 baking sheets in layers between wax paper. Today I'll place them in freezer bags, about 6 to a bag.

Got a lot to do...Later!
