Peppers and carrots
Dill, tomatoes, green beans
Cucumbers and zucchini
I finally have enough cucumbers to make the first batch of bread and butter pickles. The recipe I use is from a very nice book called Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. My friend Kathryn claims they are the best bread and butter pickles she's ever had! I posted the recipe on a previous blog so I won't post it again.
The cucumbers and onions need to soak for 2 hours so that is what they are doing at the moment.
I have an Oxo Mandoline which I love. These cukes are being sliced at the setting between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch
Sliced Onions. Good thing I wear contact lenses - no tears!

Cover with cold water. I added some ice cubes. Let sit for 2 hours, then rinse.
