     Today was flea market day in our house. I absolutely love when we find awesome deals and today was no exception. We ran into our favorite veggie vendors at the market and they gave me an amazing deal on some baby cucumbers. So, I had to make a batch of pickles! I have three little pickle monsters here at home and making my own is so much better than buying them in the store. I know what is in them and it is much more budget friendly. All together, it was just under three hours work and a ton of fun! So, if you are a huge pickle family like we are, then this is a DIY project for you! 
     For canning, I use a Ball kit like this. It has everything you need except the jars, lids, rims, and labels. I highly recommend it. It works more than just for pickles, so if you want to start canning, this is the set for you.
