Pickle Pack: Family bonds each summer over cucumber canning
The Anderson family may have found the secret recipe for family bonding: dill pickles.
The eight siblings, originally from Lowry, Minn., pack family fun into hundreds of jars and just one day each summer.
This year, the annual tradition began at 7 a.m. in a garage near Audubon. They packed and processed six bushels – 174 quarts and 60 pints of cucumbers. Next year they’re aiming for 11 bushels, which should make more than 300 quarts.
