Then I because I had a ton of cucumbers left over I made bread and butter pickles for my dad. I'm not a huge fan of sweet pickles, but my dad loves them so I tried my hand at making them. They take a lot of sugar. It was about a cup and a quart of sugar for two and a half cans worth of brine for bread and butter pickles.
Then just because I was on a roll I also made blueberry jam. It is so yummy, i love making jam. I only made a half batch, but it still felt like it made a lot. There is something very satisfying about canning and preserving food items. Maybe it's a call back to my roots.
