The smell of the harvest

Somewhere I've read that one thing that stays with us as a memory is our smell. I remember as a child my mother did a lot of canning each fall. She would harvest the cucumbers and dill and start the pickle brine. It wouldn't take long and you could smell the brine through the whole house.

And now I am lucky enough that my wife enjoys canning.

We pick all the cucumbers and she turns them into pickles.

The smell of that brine takes me back to my childhood and I see mom with her apron on canning those pickles.

Makes the mouth water.

I like too when smells on food, when something is preparing especially for winter season.

We used to do a lot of canning, too. Pickles, green beans, dozens of different jellies, beets, pickled eggs, and the list goes on! I plan on carrying out the same tradition after we get a home of our own. :)
