Aunt Joys Recipe

My darling husband made my Aunt Joy’s famous crock pickles tonight. This recipe has been in the family for as long as I can remember. These pickles are wonderful with sandwiches and hamburgers. Or just enjoy them all by themselves. I hope you get a chance to make your own and add them to your family recipes.

Aunt Joy’s Crock Pickles

1 gallon jar

2 quart water

½ cup canning salt

½ vinegar


Grape vine leaves


Dried red peppers

Foil and Lid

Fill jar with pickles, about 3 peppers, about 8 leaves, Dill, and garlic. Mix water, salt and vinegar in large pot and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes. Pour liquid over pickles and place foil over top and place led on loosely. After cooling put in the frig. You’ll have great pickles in about 4 to 5 days.

Today is a typical Monday. I have a list a mile long and to many things on the list to actually get done in one day. I was up at 5:00 this morning because of the time change, my internal clock is still with the old time. I’m sure at the end of the day I’ll want to go to bed at 8:00. I worked in the yard all day yesterday. I didn’t take any pictures before I started. I’ll post after pictures later. Not so pretty, because all the summer flowers and greenery are long gone.
