Pickle Your Resolutions v. 2014

Last year I saw a flyer for pickle-making at Happy Girl Kitchen for New Year's Eve and, on a whim, we went. Click to read about that adventure: here!

And because we loved it so much, we decided to add it to our New Year's Eve 2014 festivities. This year the boys knew exactly what they were doing...









Grab clean jars.

Chop... 

Chop... 

And chop some more!


Add in your spices and seasonings...


Pour in the brine, adding sugar, if you want a sweet pickle...


Then let it water process for 15 minutes. Thanks, Luis, for your help.


Many people have New Year's Eve traditions. I'm glad to have this one as part of ours. Now we just have to wait two weeks to crack into these jars. That will be the toughest part of our 2014 pickles. We have a couple of mixed jars with Brussels sprouts, cabbage, beets, and carrots. And I did one with Buddha's hand and onion slices.
