Last weekend my Grandmother and Aunt came to visit, and meet the newest member of the family of course. We took advantage of having extra helping hands, and canning knowledge, and went to work pickling a huge batch of carrots! My dad grew a very impressive garden in his backyard this year which yielded a large carrot crop. He dug up the carrots, Grandma washed them, I chopped them and together we added garlic, onions, dill and all the other ingredients. I don't have a recipe to share, mainly because we did a lot of experimentation and they won't be ready to test for a couple weeks now, but we snapped some photos during the process and I hope you'll feel inspired to try a little preserving of your own. As I've mentioned, I'm very new to the world of canning but I sure am loving learning more!
^^ My dad searched around town for organic ingredients beforehand, and although there were some specific ingredients that he couldn't find organic the majority of what we put into the jars is. ^^
^^ Don't they look delicious?! Grandma has requested that we bring some down to share at Thanksgiving and I can't wait to try them! ^^
^^ In case you were wondering what Emery did all day, she thoroughly enjoyed being read to by my Aunt and napping in a sun spot on the living room floor. ^^
