I am always trying to find items in the cabinet that can be used more than once. I was faced with trying to find an item to help me keep my peppers that I was pickling submerged in the solution rather than rising to the top. I came up with the idea of filling a gallon zip lock bag with water and placing it on the top of the peppers. Amazingly, it kept them completely submerged for the 18 hours I needed and I was able to reuse the plastic bag.

I have a pickled vegetables recipe that calls for pearl onions, could I use the cans of pearl onions for this? I found canned pearl onions at Wal-mart. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When the pickle jar gets empty, don't throw out that pickle juice. Drop carrot sticks or zucchini slices into the juice and let marinade for a few days. This makes a delicious, healthy snack.

I know someone who used to actually drink the pickle juice and just loved it. She said it helped her with colds. (04/10/2008)
