The first batch of these is a little softer than I'd like. Next year I'll use a little more salt and a water bath canner instead of the pressure canner.
I like these for their simplicity. They only contain a 1:1 ration of vinegar & water, cherry peppers, salt, a bay leaf, mustard seed and a clove of garlic.

We received our above counter copper sink from mexicancopper.com. This is going to be an interesting project.
My husband is going to make the base by welding strips of metal that he's been gathering for a while. Once it is finished we will paint it black. We probably won't use flat, but it definitely won't be gloss either.
We'll most likely cover the top with some sort of tile or possibly (but unlikely) stone.
For those who want to know, the workmanship on this is beautiful. The copper is thick and will last us forever, I'm sure.
