spices in and one jar packed with chunks of cucumbers just waiting for the pickling to begin!

both jars filled (yes, I only made two…I want to make sure the recipe turns out for me before I go make a whole mess of ’em!

filled with the brine! Which consists of vinegar, vinegar, and more vinegar…the fumes of which went straight up my nose…also water and pickling salt (which I’m pretty sure is NOT up my nose)

all done! Pop! Pop! Is there a better sound in the world than your jar lids popping after you take them out of the water?! I’ll answer that for you, No! There is no better sound!

Now all I have to do is wait a few weeks….wait….WHAT?!?! Weeks? How am I supposed to wait that long to munch on these nummy looking homemade pickles?!

I have no will power.
