    Creative kitchen play today. Pineapple, Jalapeno Relish with fresh Lime, Ginger and with a generous splash (half a mickey) of Captain Morgan White Rum. Preliminary taste testing suggests it's going to be stellar.
  2. Controls crabbing as well, a plus with multiple line spreads on the Great Lakes where two rods styles per person can be deployed with multiple presentation options available.
  3. I've always liked those machines Cliff. Had a chance to play with one briefly on Simcoe ice many years ago. Would be a great (functional) toy to own for sure.

    Not sure if I posted this from August Smitty? I did a small batch of Red Pepper Jelly much like the recipe in the link you posted, in that I did use Apple Cider Vinegar.
  5. I use Pickling Vinegar (white) Smitty diluted (3-1) with filtered water. I do not pre salt to remove moisture, I've not found it necessary. Since it's pickling per say and not canning I just cold pack (sterilized jars and lids of course) and pour the boiling brine over top and place the lids on. Like you I would think they would become soft and not "pickle" like. The way I do it they do stay firm.
  6. Oh boy, highly envious. It all sounds so good!
  7. I was right in my thoughts on location, lol...."that hill." That'll be the hill I die on.... lmao!
  8. I believe I do, or at least within the general area. There at 4am, you be nutz! LOL Nice fish though. Are those Frogg Toggs breathable waders Brian?
  9. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I was hesitant the first time I made them 4 years ago and now wish I had done so many years sooner. I desperately wanted to use fresh Dill but my two local grocers were out so I settled for dried Dill. Next year I think I'll grow my own Dill along with the Tomatoes.
