I'm most hungry with that "gotta eat" feeling just before supper. I've found that having one large dill pickle spear helps a lot. It has no calories. It is crunchy, which is satisfying. It's big enough to take a long time to eat. Pickles are very high in sodium so that needs to be taken into consideration, but personally, I'll take the salt over too many calories.

I keep a large jar of Dill Pickles in my fridge. They are practically calorie free, and when I get the urge for a snack or something other than bland vegetables, I have a pickle. Sounds silly, but it has kept me from attacking the cereal, cookies or chips that I still have not eaten yet. That crisp, cold, salty, savory flavor of a good dill pickle really does the trick!
When you need to wash a large amount of dill pickles for canning, line to bottom of the washing machine with a large towel place pickles in and cover with another towel. Run through a low gentle cycle on cold, the pickles will all be clean and ready for canning. 334
