I sent my husband to the store to get some tomatoes.  He came back with a 10 boxes of instant potatoes.  He said they were on sale.  Anyone have suggestions on what to do with 10 boxes of instant potatoes? Any suggestions would be helpful.

I have a question about the cinnamon pickles recipe. The recipe calls for 8-1/2 gallons of water. I can't imagine having a container that large in anyone's kitchen. Is that really right or is that some misprint?
