The final kick was when Meredith dashed into the knitting store and I wandered into the Grilled Cheese where they had an awesome wall of pickled things.
I wanted to do some more pickling.
My biggest problem is that I didn't really have the proper jars, so I ended up cramming the eggs into a small mason jar (should've used a larger one) and using some jam jars for the beets. This resulted in the eggs being so tightly packed that the sides against the jar didn't absorb the colour very well, and the beets not being fit for long-term storage. I always recommend proper sterilized mason jars with new lids.
