Homemade Yumminess!

I am probably the biggest pickle lover you will ever meet so, I decided to take a shot at making them homemade!!

I adapted the recipe from the Making Chicken Salad blog {i mentioned it here when I made my homemade cleaning products}.

{click here for the recipe}

*I adapted the recipe to fit a larger jar. I also decided to make pickled okra. Being from the South, I have definitely had my share of pickled okra over my 25 years of life...yum!! I used the same recipe as for the pickles except that I added 2 pinches of red pepper flakes for a little kick!

Here is the final product:

I am going to let the pickles and okra sit in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks before trying them. I really want them to absorb all of the flavors of the spices/herbs!

I will follow up about how deliciously, amazing these are...hopefully I can wait 2 weeks before having a taste!

Happy Tuesday!

Oh very cool- I have never thought about trying to make my own pickles! You will have to let us know how they turn out!

UMMMM YUMMMM! I saw a recipe in southern living this month for pickled okra which I love but I am a little nervous to try it... I am not sure I can do it!
