Recipe Friday - Pickles

Not much to share this week since I wasn't cooking much. I did manage to can sweet and bread and butter pickles last weekend, 8 pints each.

Bread and Butter:

Sweet Pickles:

The applesauce and butter are all that are left from last fall . The apple pie filling was gone quickly.

I don't have any pictures but I will share my rotisserie chicken recipe:

Rotisserie Chicken

1 whole chicken, insides removed

Rosemary, Thyme, Sage - fresh is best

Butter and coconut oil

Combine herbs and butter, set aside. Run hands under the skin to loosen from meat. Spread butter mix under skin. Rub outside of chicken with coconut oil, salt and pepper to taste. Arrange chicken on spit and cook 1.5 to 2 hours depending on size.

This can be used to roast the chicken also, just add 1 onion, quartered, 3-4 cloves garlic and 1 lemon, halved to the inside of the chicken and roast as normal.

Don't forget to save the carcass for making stock!
