For today's post, I am choosing the Grandma Food of Watermelon Pickles! For the recipe, my Grandma gave me this copy.
Once the rinds were finished cooking, I removed the jars one by one from the pressure cooker to the cutting board and added first pickles to 1/2" from the top followed by the juice. I then used the small spatula between the side of the jar and the pickles to remove any air bubbles. Before sealing the jars with the lids and rings, I wiped off the tops of the jars in order to have a good seal.
This is where my Grandma would have stopped. But in order to follow good canning guidelines, and not poison my friends and family, I decided to do the 10 minute water bath.
Sorry I didn't get any intermediate pictures of actually filling the cans. I will have to have the boyfriend take some pics next time. Here is the final product:
