Refrigerator Pickles

Rating: 4.5 stars 153
This recipe was given to me by my late mother-in-law and makes use of the abundant summertime supply of cucumbers. A neighbor recently presented me with four five gallon buckets of cucumbers from his garden and I made pickles for the whole neighborhood. They will also stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2 1/2 to 3 weeks.

Loquat Jam

Rating: 4 stars 1
Loquat trees are all over Southern California where I live, yet are often overlooked. The loquats make a wonderfully fragrant jam and are worth harvesting! If you have a loquat tree, wait until the loquats are yellow before picking. Once the jam cooks long enough, the loquats turn a lovely orange-pink color. This is wonderful on buttered toast, but my favorite way to enjoy it is with some salty cheese.
