And Crystal said we should try pickles because the colors would look so nice next to each other on the shelf. (Further evidence that we DO share a brain).
And I know, I know... I don't have proper canning equipment. But I'm sure this little "hobby" will be around for a while - so I'm looking into it. Don't tell Keith, though. He'll just shake his head at me and his eyes will roll into the back of his head. Like when I told him I needed to learn how to do this stuff in case of a national crisis. It isn't pretty.
