Pickling and Preserving

Here's a Japanese Pickling Jar. Honestly, I have No idea what it's called in English, so I made it up just now! Simple cucumber and salt pickles.
Finished Cucumbers. These will keep for about a week. But they get eaten up way quicker than that by Caleb.
My very first attempt at Preserving. My Mom gave me too much Kumquats. If you're curious as to what Kumquats are, it's sitting on top of the jar. They are small citrus fruits eaten for the sweet skin. I used organic honey and agave nectar to sweeten it a bit.
