Travel jars

These are simply jars with little bits from different places we have been. Close or far from home. My jars are from Michael's, 3 of the 4 sides are plain.

This one is from Fernandina Beach, FL.

Bald Mountain State Park, MI.

Driftwood Beach, Jekyll Island GA.

They currently live on the shelves in our dining room. They have changed a bit since we first moved, so I snapped a quick picture. Here they are right now. Yes someday I will put a picture in that frame.

I do still have a few bags of goodies from the past year that are in need of jars.

Scrub cucumbers and slice 1/8" thick. Slice onion. Mix onion and cucumber together in a large bowl.

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, bring vinegar, salt and sugar to a boil. Boil until the sugar has dissolved, about 10 minutes

Pour mixture over cucumbers and onions. Transfer to mason jars and store in refrigerator.
