These are addictive. This came from Cindy F. by way of my sister Marilyn.

May be a way to get some veggies into the youngsters. If you can keep the grownups away from them.

You can make these refrigerator Dillys or canned Dillys. Boiling water bath is sufficient to can due to vinegar content.

  6. If canning for shelf storage, Boiling water bath canning is sufficient, again, because of high vinegar content.
