Pickled Shrimp in a Jar

Another recipe for a jar.

Have you ever been in a pickle for something to put out at a party or what to take to someones’s house when they say bring one of your favorite appetizers. Are you always looking for something other than a piece of cheese to put on a cracker like I am.

We all always bring food to eat and my husband had made a smoked brisket and we had a wonderful corn dish and some yummy ramen slaw. I had made this jar of shrimp early in the day and we pulled it out for a nice little appetizer to snack on while Hub sliced up the brisket. It was great.
