a little disappointed
November 7, 2013
I was a little disappointed with this purchase; I was hoping for a little more from it. First I would like to say I really like the pickles. I have never done any canning or pickling before and these came out great. If, however, I want to make another batch just this again I have to figure out what the spices were.
The instructions are just a single sheet of paper. This tells you how to make the make a brine using the very small spice and salt packets included in the kit, just enough for six bottles. There is no recipe, no way to buy more of this spice mix, no recipes if I want to do something a little different.
I can probably figure out what was in it and approximate the ratio and go to the web for more recipes. So, for your money, you get six jars, canning tongs, labels and enough spices for one batch, nothing else.
Pros: Easy to Use, Design
Cons: one use only

Makes great pickles!
June 12, 2012
I love pickles and was also interesting in learning the steps to proper canning, so I thought this would be a great start. The instructions were very easy to understand and everything worked perfectly.
I picked up some fresh Kirby (pickling) cucumbers at my local farmers market and pickled them the same afternoon. The spice mix included with the pickling kit makes the pickles super crunchy and fresh with just the right amount of spice.
I wish that the Brooklyn Brine company would sell refills of the pickling mix!
I have caught the "canning bug" after making these pickles and have made rhubarb and blueberry jam using the book, "Put Em Up!" also available from WS.
Pros: Easy to Use
