Blog Prompt – It’s International Pickle Week and I would love to hear about the pickles you love best.
There aren’t too many pickles I won’t eat. I love dill, sweet, bread and butter pickles. It really depends on what I am eating to what pickle I will choose.
I love dills on my hamburgers, bread and butter pickles on different kinds of sandwiches. My mother makes a great bread and butter pickle and here is a great recipe for them. She also use to make a lot of dill pickles too. Those would surely make you pucker.
Really easy recipe for all those cucumbers you have from your garden.

4 onions, sliced
1/4 cup salt

Have a wonderful pickle day,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
