Then, after making sure that all of the stop lights in San Jose were working, I went to my friend's house and we started pickling less than a peck of peppers. So we threw in other veggies. Cucumbers, cauliflower, onions and garlic and soaked them in a salt bath.
And put them in the water bath.
Voila' the finished project. All the jars popped nicely and are now resting on various peoples shelves.
As a side note, finding jars was somewhat of a mission. Between the economy and Alton Brown's pickling lessons this week, most stores were out of stock.
All in all, it was a fun day.
