When we visited my Aunt and Uncle in June, Laurie served home canned pickles. I don't usually eat pickles because the sweet/sour juice aggravates my paralyzed vocal cord and I cough and can't breathe. But I thought since they were homemade I would try one. I bit into it and it was my Grandma's pickles. It brought back so many memories of meals around my Grandma's table. Since it didn't make me cough, I HAD to make some. Of course I went to Mom's because she has all the stuff to can. We made 10 pints. It's a super easy recipe.
