Yup, the price is finally coming down on green beans, and so I bought right around 15 pounds worth of them, with the goal of doing some pickling. I also bought a handful of Serrano peppers so I could make a batch of spicier ones, instead of just dill.
The only real problem with this plan is that it is supposed to be 98-101 degrees this weekend, not ideal for sweating over a canner. However, I think I have a plan.
Because I went and donated blood this morning, I will probably be ready to go to bed about 8-8:30 tonight. Then, I can wake back up at about 3:30-4 AM, and get most of the sweaty part done before things heat up, and have a great excuse for a last Saturday afternoon nap!
