    Below is my request for the recipe and responses I received. Marily posted the recipe and Susie to the link. See Marilyn's recipe below from finding it on facebook. Ladies from this site have always been so helpful to me in finding exactly what I seem to need and this recipe was no exception!
     
    I made a test batch of each suggestion and this one was the winner in taste test. Just enough heat, just enough dill and they were so easy to make! It was the perfect recipe for us as the family and friends loved them.
     
    Thank you ladies for the help in discovering the recipe~I will be making more today!

    Seriously, I have some canned frog balls and I WANT THE RECIPE! I don't see any in the search, but maybe they aren't coming up?
    Do you have one that you will share?  I don't want the hot HOT, Frog Balls, just mild heat but I guess that could be adjusted with the peppers.
    I bought some, put them in an antipasta salad and they were AWESOME! I let the ones I had drain well and only added two to the huge salad and it was perfect with salami, olives, dressing, etc....The kids ate them like candy on a veggie platter.
     
    I have already told the hungry hubby that he WILL grow more brussel sprouts for these amazing little gems~but that means I have to do something with them and I want to make frog balls!
     
    Would anyone have a recipe to share?
    Thank you so much in advance~will check in after work!

    I just copied this off Facebook. Hope it's what you're looking for.

     

    Frog Balls

    2lbs Brussels Sprouts
     21/2 cups water
     4 heads dill
     21/2 cups vinegar
     1t cayenne pepper
     4 garlic cloves (opt)
     3T pickling salt
     4 heads dill (opt)
     2 jalapeno peppers or 1 habanero pepper
     
    Cook whole Brussels sprouts until just tender. Pack in hot sterilized
     pint jars. Combine water, vinegar, salt, dill, cayenne pepper, hot
     peppers (left whole but cut top off and take out seeds). Wear gloves
     when working with hot peppers. Cook vinegar solution for 10 minutes.
     Remove hot peppers and pour over Brussels sprouts, leaving a 1/4-inch
     headspace. Add a clove of garlic, 1 extra dill head, a slice of hot
     pepper in jar (optional). Adjust sterilized lids and process pints 15
     minutes in boiling–water bath canner. Makes about 4 pints
     
    We used a dill brine, hot peppers, and some cayenne- this recipe, except that we did not cook the Brussels sprouts first, and did not put the hot

    peppers or dill heads into the brine. We brought the vinegar, water, salt, and cayenne pepper brine to a boil, put a garlic clove, one tsp of dill

    seeds, and a dried hot pepper into each jar, packed in the raw sprouts, covered with the hot brine, then processed for 15 minutes.

    After two weeks we threw a dinner party to try them out. The crunch of the Brussels sprouts was terrific. The heat was noticeable and lingered.

    I look forward to putting on another month of age. With nine pints in all, they will go fast. These sprouts came from Costco last month. I saw

    them in the chill room while shopping for supplies. They looked fresh and were one quarter the price of the soggy ones I can get from the local

    grocery store. While loading all the purchases into the car, I asked my mom to go back in and purchase two bags of the Brussels sprouts. Then,

    on the way home, mom called Judy to heat the jars, find a recipe, and make the brine. By 9:00 PM, the canning was complete. Watch for more

    sprout canning in the near future.

    Thanks Susie and Marilyn...these are copied, printed and waiting for early fall when they are ready for picking here.

    I just may try a little of each...my family fell in love with these things and I am anxious to try canning them myself!

    Helen, You have company.  I was totally confused by the title as I have seen a frog or two in my life and I don't remember observing anything.  Embarrassed  That resembled  ahhhhhh.  I say a Balloon.   lol

     

    I bet they would be tasty. I have made sauerkraut balls before and they are wonderful.

     

    Now that I know what I am dealing with I'll snoop around.  Janie
