pickle recipe to try :: 7/1/2012
Found a new recipe to try, I haven't tried it... I am curious as how it would turn out. EVER CRISP LIME PICKLES
2 lb. sm. to med. cukes
2 c. white powdered builders lime
2 gal. cold water

Slice cucumbers 1/4 inch thick.

Dissolve lime in cold water in 3 gallons or larger stone jar. Add sliced cucumbers. Soak 24 hours, stirring occasionally with wooden spoon.

Rinse well 2 or 3 times in cold water. Cover again with plain cold water and soak 3 hours. Drain well. Then cover with the following vinegar solution. Use cold.

2 qt. vinegar
6 cinnamon sticks
A few hole cloves
1 tsp. celery seed
9 c. sugar
1 tsp. pickling spice
3 tbsp. salt

Stir well to dissolve sugar. Pour cold water over cukes. Let stand over night. Bring all to boil. Simmer 35 minutes. Seal hot in hot pint jars. Revise solution 1/4 more for 15 pints of pickles.

Why do two separate but related servers that run the same code have TWO separate password requirements? One is 7 chars and one is 8 chars with NO special characters like *@#$!| So I try to go and change the other password that I just set... and I get this:

$ passwd
passwd: Changing password for 
Enter existing login password:
passwd: Sorry: less than 7 days since the last change.
Permission denied

I know I should have separate passwords for everything, but to me they are just about the same server. It's just odd and maybe I'm just being cranky this morning.
