Hurray! Merrilyn offered another cooking class today. Everything was ready when Phyllis and I walked through the door.
Into the clean jars went garlic, a sprig of dill, dill seed, bay leaves and exactly 6 peppercorns although Merrilyn said, "You can put in 7 if you're feeling naughty."
Fill with hot salty vinegary water and process in the oven. Wah-la! Dill pickles.
