Managing Vegetables

Last Friday, I was offered all the peppers I wanted. I took three small ones and a jalapeno pepper. Another woman wandered in and said she would just take all of the rest.  ?!?! I might have take another two if I thought someone would take all the rest.

Since I don't eat raw bell pepper, I put one in the crockpot that was started on Saturday. The other two were pickled.

There is a huge jar of Vlasic Stackers, pickles cut lengthwise, in the refrigerator. With only one slice left, it was time to fill the jar with something else. I cut the remaining two bell peppers in slices after coring and put them in the jar. Now that jar has earned the real estate it was holding.

The exbf will eat these if I can remember to put in his salad or put some on his plate. I just cannot eat pickled food.

Dominique will love the bell pepper seeds and my apple core and bit of banana with a bruise.

Your turn
Do you ever put veggies into your jar of pickle juice?

  1. I never thought of that! Do you just pop them straight in?
    and yes, so many times I have been conservative about taking give aways and then someone else just took a pile. It's very annoying. And rude

    1. kylie,
      I rinsed them, cored them, and popped them right into the jar with the one slice of pickle. Rude--what I thought!

    1. carol,
      Do you cook the beets first? How long do you leave the eggs in the pickle juice. I don't eat pickles at all. Pickles I buy are just for company I might have. So, I have all kinds of pickles over time just because others like them. You do mean boiled eggs, peeled? How long do they last?
