The last time I used my pickle I didn’t throw it out, but left it in
the crockpot. That was some months ago. Not a great plan, I know, but
that’s not the question I have.
When I went to use my pickle pot again, and discovered the stuff
still in there, there was a quantity of clear liquid and a veritable
forest of interesting crystal formations all over the bottom of the
pot. I was able to lift these crystals out whole. It didn’t appear to
have caused any damage to my crockpot.
I’m no chemist and have only a vague idea of what pickle is. Does
anyone know what these crystals are? They started life as water and
Sparex #2. I’m curious as to what they’ve morphed into, and whether
they have any usefulness beyond being interesting to look at.
