Pickles, Pick Smoothie & Artemis Prime

I haven't had pickles in what feel like ages because most store bought pickles are made with white vinegar which I can't have but these babies call for apple cider. I picked up the cutest little pickling cukes at the farmers market and couldn't wait to use them. 

  • 4 dozen pickling cucumbers
  • 1 bunch fresh dill
  • 1 quart apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup pickling salt
  • 16 garlic cloves, peeled
Wash the cucumbers and remove any stems. Cover with cold water and refrigerate overnight or for several hours. Pack the cucumbers into pint jars as tightly as possible. Poke in 2 sprigs of dill per jar. Bring vinegar, water, salt and garlic to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove the garlic cloves and distribute evenly in to jars while the brine cools slightly. Pour hot brine into jars and seal. Makes 12 pints. Ready in as little as 24 hours or wait 2 weeks for super seasoned pickles.
Pink Smoothie
  • 1 banana
  • 1 plum
  • 1 large handful strawberries
  • 4-5 mint leafs
  • water
Put fruit in blender. Add water. (I fill mine to the 2 cup line and add more as needed. Enjoy!
