|Pickles made from my Taproot Pickle pack|
It was all good until I decided to photograph the pickles, basil and jam and then up load it on my computer. It was that one tiny time when I tried to be technical myself instead of asking the powers that be upstairs to come help me. It is a well learned lesson. I hope that when I call apple tomorrow there will be a miracle. Somehow I doubt it.
|Taproot Farm Organic Basil|
Tonight I made dill pickles. 19 litres to be exact. yup, that's a lot of pickles and I got my complete pickle pack from Taproot Farms. It was an add on option to my regular veggie order this week along with 2lbs of organic Basil waiting to be made into Pesto. I've posted a recipe I did a couple of years ago for garlic scape pesto. You can change it up with basil for sure and omit the nuts and parmesan if you want. The version I make for the school will just be olive oil, basil and garlic. to many allergies to complicate it and really it is just as tasty. The pickles were very easy and my seven year old peeled garlic and stuffed jars with cukes. I know she is dreaming of pickles. After all we do call her pickle potomus! So now that I am perserving I may have enough material for another cookbook Maple Tree Volume 2 perhaps! ~m
