Today we visited my brother at the Growing Home farm in Merseilles, IL (that’s pronounced “Mar-sails”) and pickled our brains out. Everything we pickled was fresh from the farm including the wild plums which we harvested ourselves. In the end we each ended up with a quart of wild plum jam, tomato and eggplant relish, pickled onions and grilled pickled sweet peppers. Oh and he sent us home with a small jar of the beet and turnip sauerkraut. It was a good day.
