How Not To Get Yourself,

into a pickle,

 evidently pickling jars where pressure has to be applied, take up a lot of room in the refrigerators,

so here is a neat idea from foodie Tomonori Tanaka, who tried his hand at making pickles last year, then found it harder than expected, so Tanaka decided to design his own, the Picklestone launched on Japanese crowdfunding site Camp Fire last week, and it’s everything a modern-day pickle-maker would want, simply add your vegetables and pickle brine (typically salt, chili pepper, and konbu kelp) to the jar and slide the hinoki cypress wooden lid over the vegetables, then place the pickle stone on top and let it do the rest, and here is the good bit, the compact container is designed to fit right into the liquids shelf of your refrigerator next to your milk and juice, and no I am not on commission, I just thought it was a neat idea.
