12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Salvador Dali Clock on: January 12, 2009 07:10:34 AM
I was inspired by the melting clocks in "Persistence of Memory". It is made of an old clock mechanism, leather, silk and puff paint. My mom helped me sew because I lack sewing machine skillz. The clock actually works as long as the face doesn't obstruct the hands. I put a snap button on the back so it can fold over and stay, such as when it hangs over a stick.

Looks great! Apple skins contain a lot of pectin that forms jelly. I make jelly out of powdered pectin from the grocery store, but this seems really cool!

Adorable! I never understood the purpose of toilet paper cozies until now. They're for growing piranha plants!

It is made of many layers of paper mache tissue paper. Kudos to my sister for helping with the gloop. I got the lamp base from Target and spray painted it green. The spots and lips are painted with acrylic paint. The teeth are bristol board.

It is not easy to spoil. Just keep them out of extreme heat. If it is spoiled and you normally eat pickles, you can definitely tell. You should give it a shot.
19  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Zippy Garlic Dill Pickles (fermented) on: July 23, 2008 08:21:32 PM
Garlic and shallots give these pickles a spicy kick! These are very good and are FERMENTED, not vinegar packed! Because of different levels of bacteria, temperature, etc, each batch will taste a little different. If your pickles come out slimy or stinky, do not eat them. They are spoiled.
While they are fermenting, the water will cloud and you will see floating white bits and bubbles in it. Don't worry.
Your pickles are ready when the skin has turned olive and shriveled. The flesh should be translucent. You can keep pickles in the fridge for up to a half year!

fresh young cucumbers*
    *I recommend young kirby cucumbers. If they are the larger kind, cut it up so it fits in your jar. If your cucumbers are ripe and developed a lot of seeds, scoop the seeds out. Don't use the huuuge cucumbers you use for salad.
kosher salt (it has no anti-caking agents. these make pickles mushy.)
fresh dill, snipped up
pickling spices (a blend of mustard seeds, pepper corns, cinnamon, cloves, and bayleaf you can buy in a jar)
garlic, cut into halves
shallots or onions, cut into petals

very clean glass jars
plastic wrap

1) Make your brine. 1 tablespoon of kosher salt per cup of water.
2) Line the bottom of your jar with dill.
3) Pack in your cucumbers so that there is still enough room between them so you can wiggle them.
4) Put 3 cloves of garlic (halved) and 1 1/2 shallots (petaled) in the jar.
4) Rinse 1 tablespoon of pickling spices a couple of times in cold water to get rid of most of the anti-caking agents. Then put it in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm up your spices and make it fragrant. Put the warm spices in the jar.
5) Fill the jar with brine 1 cm from the top.
6) Put plastic wrap around the mouth and screw on the lid.
7) The hard part: wait a week.
8 ) If scum forms on top, scoop it out with a spoon. This is yeast.
