Pickle Making Made Easier

The back story: I'm watching Hoarders on DVD, and every time I watch the show, not only do I become increasingly agitated about two boxes of electronics the boy stores in our office (they must go!), but I have the urge to do some crazy cleaning and purging. Like, take-apart-the-range hood-and-clean-it-at-midnight crazy.

So, I find myself at Ichiban Kan because they sell Mr. Clean Eraser knock-offs and microfiber cloths crazy cheap, and what do I find? Japanese pickle making containers! For $1.75 each! I've never seen such containers, but judging by the animation on the label (imagine talking cucumber slices and a talking salt shaker), these are for Japanese pickled cucumbers.

Although I prefer to ferment in glass or ceramic, these were too darn cool to pass up. And because I seem to be learning nothing by my nightly prescription of Hoarders, I bought the last two pickle makers in stock. But, unlike a hoarder, I'm using them immediately! See? You all are my witnesses! I am not becoming a hoarder.

These are so dang cool. I can hardily stand it. So tidy!

If these Mexican carrot pickles turn out any good, I'll post the recipe.


  1. How did you know that pickled carrots are just about my favorite snack food ever?!? Must go to Ichiban Kan this weekend.

  2. What a good idea! Did they come in larger sizes? I just froze some carrots - I never thought to pickle them. Hmmm.

  3. I'm not sure if they come in larger sizes. The Ichiban Kan near me only had the small containers that I purchased.

  4. I don't think you have anything to worry about becoming a hoarder! After all you are nothing like your brother who still has his PE shirt from high school...
