Rind Pickles are finally done !!!

Well it's taken a while but here they are. Got the recipe from here. Mine did not turn out red like the ones on the link but they sure smell good. That much sugar and cinnamon sticks it has to be pretty good. I didn't get the 4 to 5 pints that they said so, I just put half into 2 different qt jars, giving one to Liv's mother. I'll wait a few weeks to try them, let them sit and work awhile. I still think they look alot like apples. They have a very nice amber color to them. But anyway, I gave it a shot. Never had them before but wanted to try to use the rind that most just throw away. When I try them I'll post the results. If anyone else tries this, please let me know how yours turn out.

Wow, those look like fun to try. Maybe we will this year, with some of the rinds from the ones we're trying to grow.

I loved the pic of your corn taller in the middle... a real testament to the goodness in compost!

Ron, thanks, I hope we like the rind pickles they sure smell and llok great. Compost is amazing stuff when done right. The corn tells the story.

Wow, wonderful find! I came across an old jaffle iron (you put your sandwiches in and close, toasting over hot coals) almost new for $1 the other day, have to love bargains!

Molly, thanks, now that you mention it I think I have one of those around here somewhere. I will work my way through the clutter in the storage building to try to find it. Would be nice to have a toasted sandwich over the camp fire.
