      Where did you get that stainless steel pot with the insert?
      Please let me know.

    8. webcajun Says:

      @Mr2wings … just about any big box hardware should sell em. The medium size pot is for frying turkeys and the large pot is for boiling crawfish…….. Donald

      did u sterilize these inside and why not add picked salt or spice compared to other recipes just curious — yrs look so simple right now I am frustrated another recipe I followed that I am ready to quit

    10. webcajun Says:

      @Morningwhispers … guess you could add other seasonings but this is the way I was brought up eating em. Most important, my grandkids love em this way. Try out this recipe and see what you think. I like eating them cold, right out the frig……Donald

      Donald another great video. Have you made a video on making chow chow? Those who are not from the south call it southern or dixie relish. I hope you and your love ones had a Merry Christmas. Happy New Year’s. Thanks.

      @KentuckyRebels … hadn’t done anything on Chow Chow but I will keep it in mind. Glad you enjoy the videos……….Donald

      Great video, as always!

      How long do pickled/canned vegetables store for before going bad?

    18. webcajun Says:

      @Cashis4life … it’s my understanding that after a year the contents begins to lose some of it’s flavor. ….Donald

      Does this pickling solution work with other vegetables as well?

    20. webcajun Says:

      @m96c40 …may want to leave out the sugar and add pickling spice….Donald

    21. m96c40 Says:

      @webcajun Got it. Thank you.

      this is terrific! I was too little when my Grandmother was teaching me all her recipes, and one of my favorites was her beet pickles. All I have however is the recipe- SO THANKYOU so much for being detailed in the jarring process and the preping process. Im hooked on all your videos now!

      My beets are about ready to harvest, although mine must be a different variety than yours because my beet leaves are green (gonna have to cook dem, too). I might just have to try your recipe.

      Love me dem black waterdogs. Me and mine are working on our Master Hunter title.

      Thanks for posting.
