There’s a simple law that all guys know: Everything is slightly better if you made it. Okay, this might not hold true for the nightstand you built that rocks more than an 80′s hair band, but it is for anything that comes out the way you intended. That new deck, the perfect cocktail, a gourmet dinner—they’ll all be more enjoyable if you didn’t just shell out cash for the finished product. This law transcends all things regardless of price or importance. Like pickles. Yup, if you’ve never tried before, now’s the perfect time to make some homemade pickles with this kit from Brooklyn Brine. The pickling kit includes the jars, spices and directions needed to get you going. And besides, no great burger is really complete without that hit of acidity you get from a quality pickle (that’s what she said).
