So, I said, more than once, that I wasn't going to do any canning this year. Because, you know, lack of a kitchen* kinda gets in the way of actually working in the kitchen.
But then Liz went and posted this. And it made me remember I really wanted bread & butter pickles.
And then I went to pick up my CSA basket, and found out they had pickling cucumbers for sale.
Thus, for the first time ever, I made pickles.
$7 worth of cucumbers, onions from the garden, some vinegar and spices... and I now have 10 pints of pickles for the coming year.
*Technically, I still have a kitchen, but it consists of one sink, one stove, one fridge and one counter, 3 feet long. Have I mentioned lately I'm tired of living in a reno site?
