I bought 2 pounds of jalapenos at the store today. I'm vinegar pickling most of them, but plan on fermenting some. I'm really looking forward to naturally pickled peppers. MMMmmmmmm...

Today is the first day back to school for our boys. It's been a pretty productive day for me so far.
I made my bed, got some laundry in, and got another load folded and put away.
I got the dishwasher loaded, and running, cleaned up in the kitchen, sliced up 2 pounds of jalapenos, and pickled them.
As I type this, they're cooling in their water bath on the stove (Yay! Just heard a lid pop tight!)
I've also managed to go through all $70 worth of bulk spices that I picked up yesterday, and place them in labeled glass jars for air tight storage this morning.
It's not even noon yet.
This is what happens when you're up at 5:45am, and left to your own devices in quiet for the morning.
Next on my list is to take the handful jalapenos that I set aside, and these lovely heads of cabbage, and get some fermented goodness goin' on.
I'm pretty content homeprepping..... I mean.... prepsteading.... I mean.... never mind.
