Hot & Sweet Pickles

I decided to make another crock of Grammy’s 14 Day Pickles and picked up a peck of cukes when the family went to the Belleville Farmer’s Market. I would love to take so many photos of that great market but don’t ever want to accidentally take a photo of any Amish folks. I usually snap some of the horses but then I feel bad for them when I see them acting out behaviors and habits that show how bored they are.

This batch of pickles I decided to tweak the spicing just a bit by adding crushed red pepper to the spice bags. It did color the syrup a bit orange as they released their oils over the last few boils but it never really picked up much heat. Thanks to Mom & Dad – I added some cayenne peppers right when I canned them. My hope is that they will pick up a little heat that way.

Inspired by a little hot pepper Arron drew earlier this week, I am making some labels or the jars with a couple of veggie characters. They make me smile and I hope that they come out a little hot.
