I always buy at a rib roast with at least 3 ribs. I try to keep the middle rib rare while the two outer ribs are medium rare.

  1. Wash cucumbers and trim off the blossom end of the cucumber.
  2. Stir salt and water together in a jar, then add cucumbers and seasonings leaving at least 2" of headspace.
  3. Keep produce submerged in brine with the special crock weights.
  4. Cover with lid, add water around the moat, and let sit in a cool dark place for 7-10 days, or until it reaches your desired sourness, then refrigerate in brine to stop fermentation and store. Perhaps add some seeds and garlic from the crock.
  5. Pickles will become more sour each day they ferment and the brine will turn cloudy.
Notes
  1. First try was 8 days - too spicy hot, too much clove, too sour.
  2. try checking them at 3 days.

Pie Crust Lard

Pie Crust w/ Lard
Ingredients
  1. 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. Pinch salt
  3. 1/2 cup lard
  4. 3 to 4 tablespoons cold water
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle in water, a tablespoon at a time, until pastry holds together. Shape into a ball; chill for 30 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Transfer to a 10-in. pie plate. Flute edges; fill and bake as pie recipe directs.
Notes
  1. Excellent. I doubled the recipe for 2 deep dish 10" pies. It was a tad short, barely enough for pans. I pre-baked 10 min @ 400. After allowing the crust to cool I added the pumpkin mix. The pumpkin pie filling was wet I baked for 20 min @ 425, then 45 min @ 350. Even with the pre-bake and long cooking time, the crust was golden. The family said this was best ever pumpkin pie crust crust
