Finally, a day off!  I started the day with a little shopping, and then I attempted my first batch of pickles.  Ever.  Canning and pickling seems really scary, but once you get going, it’s actually pretty easy.  I hope to have a pantry full of canned preserves, jams, jellies, and pickles by the end of the summer.

My Rat Tail Radishes were ripe and ready, so I harvested yesterday, and pickled today.  I hope they taste as good as they look.  The recipe I used recommends using them in place of capers, or on a skewer in a Bloody Mary.  The Bloody Mary option sounds best to me.
