I just made a tremendous batch of pickles, and my cucumber plants are already dripping with more cucumbers. I’m running out of ideas! What a great giveaway 🙂
This would be great. I love to give pickles to family for Christmas.
A favorite memory? Hmm……I guess it’s kind of a new one but I’ve been proudly remembering last Monday when I made a tiny batch of purslane stem quick pickles in about 15 minutes….record time for me! When I’m canning I usually take forever to finish up!
My mom and I used to make lots of sweet pickle relish every year. I loved getting to grind up all the pickles in the old metal grinder, clamped to the countertop.
my grandma used to send bread and butter pickles to us for Christmas every year – military family living far away from home. I now make the same pickles
This looks like a great way to try some new flavors!
What I love most about making pickles is the excitement… finding the cutest tiny cukes for sweet gherkins at a farmer’s market stand, harvesting the best green beans from my own garden, my sons and I mixing up the tastiest spices for the brine… thinking about the finished product is almost as much fun as eating them when they’re done! Thanks for the giveaway!
Last year my sister and brother-in-law planted ghost peppers…yowza! So we used a bunch of them by putting a sliver in jars of pickles. It made for some yummy spicey pickles that weren’t too crazy hot that the wimps in the family (me!) couldn’t enjoy them.
Last year was a failure. Hoping for good memory this year.
I keep meaning to try doing my own cucumbers but keep failing to do so. This would give me no excuse to NOT do them this year 🙂
I haven’t made pickles for a few years. I think I’m ready for a major pickling session and such a wonderful prize would be exactly what I would need!!
Pickles add a nice touch to a meal!
I would like to try pickling some different types of pickles.
Our cucumbers aren’t doing so well this year…but there’s always hope! We used Mrs. Wages relish mix years ago and plan to try it again this year.
I’ve never made pickles before, this will be my first year!
The first time I canned pickles and it worked. I was amazed and so was my husband!
Zucchini cumin pickles made quick work of my excess zucchini harvest one year!
My favorite memory is of my Grandma making her saurkraut. We were so excited to keep an eye on the bloom. It was always a fun project. And weinies and saurkraut have always been one of my favorite meals.
The first time I made bread & butter pickles I couldn’t wait for them to cure. Finally around Thanksgiving I was able to open my first jar and share it with my new in-laws. To my horror I had missed the part of the recipe that said to put in the sugar ingredient!
Memory; starting as a young child canning pickles with my mom. She always had a very large garden so done A lot of canning back in the day.
My favorite was the home canned sweet pickles along with Bread N Butter pickles she / we made.
Thank you for this wonderful giveaway opportunity
A close friend of my family ask me to can bread and butter pickles with her when I was 19 years old and newly married. It was an all day canning time. She always canned enough to last her family for 2 years and we shared the results. I had 2 cases of pickles to take home and a love for canning. 60 years later I’m still canning everything I can and just started using Mrs. Wages last year and love them.
Gotta love pickle season!!
I have made several quick pickles, and make cucumber relish every year, however I have always wanted to try traditional pickles
Making pickles with my Gram back in the 60,s
Fantastic giveaway…we love pickles!
Love you and Mrs. Wage’s! After a life-changing breakup and ugly divorce two years ago I’m finally getting back to things that I am passionate about. It’s time to get back to pickle and relish-making, the county fair awaits!
Love to try these.
Used Mrs. Wages Mild Salsa mix yesterday. These products are a great addition to any canner’s kitchen.
I wish I had some kind of pickle-making memory. At least, one that stands out as good. I’ve had some disasters over the years… Mostly mushy or too-salty pickles. I stick to stuff like green beans and squash for pickling now.
I Love all pickles. Last year’s bread and butter was a big hit also the refrigerated ones.
My very ever first batch of dills; all was going well until I opened the pressure canner after processing!…Oh my:(
I remember my grandmother making pickles. She left them at our house (forgot them actually) and had to send spices for the next steps. She told my mother to “let him do it, because you will mess them up.” Ha ha, she always had confidence in my cooking/canning skills
I need to expand my canning experience. This would help 😉
I’ve always only made Mrs. Wage’s Old South Cucumber Lime Pickles. It would be interesting to try something different.
I need to broaden my pickling repertoire. Winning these items would help a lot!
My favourite pickling memories are of when all the women in my family (grandmother, mother, sister, aunts, cousins) would get together and do up massive batches of pickles for the year. Now that my grandmother is gone, we still make pickles in family units, and I include my own daughter in the process!
My favorite memory would be the first time I make bread and butter pickles from cucumbers we grew in our garden.
I don’t plant cucumbers every year, we don’t always want pickles – but this year I have planted cucumbers so this would be a perfect excuse for a community pickle making party.
Making pickles with my mom!
I’ve got both National Pickling cucumbers and Sumter cucumbers growing in my garden and I can’t wait for pickling season! This basket from Mrs. Wages looks great!
I am almost of out pickles so it’s just about time to get started making some more!
Last year I purchased a case of cucumber from the farmers market to make relish. It was a hard few days but WOW was it worth it. I still have reish from that batch we use it all the time.
My family’s favorite has always been “Sweet Bread and Butter Pickles”… for the refrigerator. I like a bite to my pickles so choose ‘dill’.
Anything involving beets is worth trying for!
Would LOVE this. Our Farmers Market has a wonderful selection of pickling cukes!
San Pedro, CA
Would love to make my first batch of pickles with your fabulous products!
I stopped pickling for a while since I was moving so much (4 times in 1.5 years!) Now that I’m settling in to my new place, can’t wait to start pickling again! This would really set me up!
I find, too late, that I maybe shouldn’t have shared my pickles quite so freely! 🙂 This will make it possible to replace those I gave away.
Nice giveaway, maybe this will get me out of my jam making rut. 🙂
What a great giveaway! I make pickles all the time, but this year will be the first with home-grown cucumbers. Can’t wait for them to be ready!
When I was little, my grandma and I made a batch of pickles using her father’s recipe. I remember them being SO delicious! This is a good reminder to me that I need to see if she still has that recipe. 🙂
Bread & Butter pickles are my favorite!! My cucumber crop is behind schedule this year.
We have actually never made pickles before, so we really want to try. Thank you!
Making pickles with myGrandmother from cucumbers picked straight from our garden.
I have not had luck making pickles. Hopefully these mixes will help!
I haven’t made pickles, yet
We make Indian pickle. It wa always a family affair with everyone getting together and making it for all the families.
Planted my first cucumbers this year. Hoping for a bumper crop, so this give away would be great.
The first time I pickled zucchini spears with my mom and discovering that they squeak when bitten!
Making quick pickles with my Mom…I still use her recipe.
I’ve been making lots of jam but would love to try pickles.
My favorite memory of making pickles is being with my mom, grandma and aunts and making an assembly line to make batches and batches of pickles for our family! I now do the same with my kiddos! Such a tradition!
I used the Mrs. Wage’s Dill Pickle Mix last year as I have not been satisfied with previous attempts at dill pickles. With the mix they were exactly as I was hoping for!
My sister makes the best pickles- I think its time to challenge her!
I’ve never made pickles but I’m game to try!
I’ve never made pickles before, this would be a great time to start.
I remember making garlic dills in the hot, TX summer and having a hard time waiting a week to open a jar.
I remember my grandma making dill pickles. They were the best ever!!!
My grandpa grew a large garden, and part of our summer routine was helping prepare and can. That range from shelling peas to snapping green beans. I never helped her make the pickles, but I can remember the finished product of home made bread and butter from a mason jar.
I love remembering my mother can all of the bounty from our garden.
I remember making spicy Chinese refrigerator pickles with my grandmother. I eventually moved into canned and fermented pickles, but this memory always stands out. Those pickles were a crazy glistening red from the chili oil, but we’re a perfect blend of crisp, sweet, salty, sour and just a bit spicy….
I remember eating containers-full of freezer pickles with club crackers at my grandparent’s home as a child. I love them and making them still brings back memories!
So far, the best pickling memories are anything to do with the pickled blueberries. My whole household has gone bonkers for them. I sent some to friends living overseas and they went bonkers for them. I take them to food swaps, and people go bonkers for them.
When I was about 7 we were visiting my grandparents house and grandma was making Bread & Butter chips using zucchini from the garden. Until then I thought I hated pickles and zucchini, but I was hooked. She let me help with the slicing and packing into jars. I’ve been canning ever since!
When my children were younger I made bread & butter refrigerator pickles with cucumbers straight from the farm. My 18 year old son still requests those pickles & he’s been quite a pickle fan ever since.
I must say I have not one specific pickling memory that is my favorite, but I Do remember the smell and coolness of my grandmother’s canning cellar. And pulling one of the cobs of corn she was pickling in her huge crock. I could suck on those little ears of corn for hours as a small child.!
I have tried making pickles with little success. These might be just the help I need.
I don’t have any pickle MAKING memories yet, but I have lots and lots of pickle EATING memories! I’m looking forward to making my first batch of pickles this year.
Bread and butter pickles , yummy!
My Mom has a crock that belonged to her Grandmother and she would always make mustard pickles once a year when we were growing up, they were strong but so good.
I’d like to try my hands at a very garlicky crunchy pickle this year, in previous years my pickles get too soft.
I’d love to try out new recipes to make pickles. Hope I win!
Excited for pickle season!
Love all of these. Can’t wait to use some of these – that is if I win
Love pickled anything!
I remember making pickles with my mother when I was a little girl. We used her grandmother’s recipe for garlic dill pickles. So delicious.
My favorite pickle making memory is helping my Grandma make pickles when I was a child. Every year we made dill, bread and butter and watermelon rind pickles. My favorite was her “end of the garden” pickles in the fall. These were made with the tiny green tomatoes just before the frost killed the vines, carrots, peppers and pretty much everything else that hadn’t been picked yet. The bigger green tomatoes went into making green tomato mincemeat, which was used for holiday pies and cookies.
My cucumber vines are starting to bloom and I will be pickleing soon. Could really use these supplies.
I love making spicy green beans like my grandma used to make. Tasty
Making Mrs. Wages lime pickles with my Mom!
I have yet to find a favourite pickle. I’m hoping to change that this year.
The first time I canned pickles was in class given by my CSA. But the BEST time was when I realized I could slice the big long cucumbers and make hamburger dills–which my husband eats by the case!
I made lemon infused pickles with lemon cucumbers ? A few years ago and won a blue ribbon in the state fair!!!!
Would love to try some of these products!
My mom was usually the one in the kitchen, except when it came to making pickles – that was my dad’s job. He used fresh cucumbers from his garden and I helped.
I did my first pickling of the year yesterday, and these spices would be very helpful for the rest of season. Thanks for the giveaway!!
