Got my pumpkin pickles made!  I posted more pics and the recipe over at Simple-Green-Frugal Co-op today.

    These look so good . I am always looking for new recipes. This just might be a reason to plant an extra pumpkin seed or two in the spring.

    What kind of jars are those?

      SE, they are actually old meat, or condiment jars. Very thick glass and fun for projects like this that don’t require too much waterbath time 🙂 I love the shapes ❤

    And how did you make it snow? That is too cool!

      SE, WordPress offers the snow in December – I forgot I had signed up for it last year, I was surprised to see it too – although today we got a little of the real thing!

    I’ve never tasted those! How do they taste? More sweet, or more sour? I’m glad that your recipe uses cider vinegar (can I use apple-cider vinegar?), as that always seems more flavorful and is available easily locally.

      Mangochild, sweet and hot depending on your pickling spice. Similar to most pickled beet recipes. Since apples are so abundant around here and ACV is so common, most locals just call it cider vinegar. I usually only use apple cider vinegar – love the taste.
