After we went to the garlic festival, we stopped at "the toy store" (a place in the town where the festival was held that has used "boy toys"). One of things they had, which I didn't buy but was VERY tempted to buy, were new, never used, hospital chamber pots (enamel pots about 3 qt with lids) for $20. The sign next to them indicated they'd be good for pickles. ...

My friend is dropping by today for eggs. I hope she brings her recipe.

Sure would be nice to be able to buy stainless steel lids for some of our favorite glass jars.

I found some gallon size jars on line. It was much cheaper for me to buy cans of picles throw them away, than actually buying new jars.How crazy it is?

Just a few, enough to maybe cover the pickles on the top and few on the bottom, not too many.

Yeap, that is what i did, went to Sam's got pickles, actually donated them to synagogue's dinner and then took clean jars home. To buy them on line was twice as much plus crazy shipping cost.

Glad to hear the pickles did not go to waste.

I thought about joining Sam's club but did not see must besides pickles and sauerkraut that I might be interested in.

Fabulous-looking pickles, and the recipe sounds delicious. I especially like no-vinegar pickles, but always thought they'd be too difficult to make. Thanks for this recipe!

You are welcome Soma. I cannot stand vinegar pickles, and the No-vinegar picles are hard to come by. That is why I make my own.
