I’ve been into pickling lately, it’s sort of fun to do and satisfies my need to chop things up in an orderly way and then organize them into jars. The eating is mainly not done by me, and that’s also ok. My most recent pickles, the turnips, have been tasted and they aren’t as good as the ones you get at Middle Eastern restaurants on a falafel. Pooper-oo.
Anyway, there’s a store at the corner of Landsdowne and Bloor that I go to almost daily because it is my favourite sort of store, an e/n discount place. It’s big, with lots of great stuff for cheap. Today I bought Lysol wipes, pitted dates, dry-wall anchors, cheap-o paint brushes and pickling spice.
Did you know what’s in pickling spice?
Spices. Insert eyeroll and sarcastic “thanks”.
