Light weekend reading

While Kristen was out running errands with Kirk and Katie, the mail came. However, I wasn’t paying attention, so they brought it in when they got home.

Side note: Kristen is starting to get freaked out by the numerous packages that are arriving with my name on them lately. Fortunately, there are only a few left pending. One on Monday, which is my water bath canner, and one that will ship on May 5, which is my birthday money from Barnes and Noble.

In the mail that they brought in, I had two goodies. First, a seed catalog that I had ordered:

It’s a little late to be planning for seeds this year, but it’s not entirely too late. That’s almost 170 pages of cool garden related stuff to drool through.

The second goodie was a preserving book.  I love me some pickles, but I am not a fan of the price that I have to pay in the grocery store. Add to that the fact that I am not the only pickle lover in the house, and you can probably guess that I don’t always get my fill of pickles. Therefore, I bought The Joy of Pickling by Linda Ziedrich

Want me some pickles. The trick is going to be finding somewhere to ferment them.

    That looks like a good book! Have fun canning! I know once I started, I couldn’t stop.

      Thanks for stopping by, Beth. I really think this is a good pickling book. The recipes are for relatively small batches and the procedures are easy to understand.

      I think my first foray into home pickling will be pickled eggs. Kristen suggested I try some “quick” pickles as well. Quick, in this case, means ready to eat in 3 weeks. lol
