view master junkie, Raspberry vinegar, 4 gallon crock jars

I have a confession.  I am a viewmaster junkie.  Relevent why?  Jimmy and I went to the Bothell farmers market yesterday and I picked up  to VM reels. Dinosaurs and the apollo moon landing.  I have been a VM junkie since I was four and my parents got me one to keep me quiet on a road trip.  I was a pretty easy kid... a viewmaster and an etcha sketch and I would go to ground for hours.  At home you could add a spirograph to that and I wouldnt come out for days... except to be fed and watered.  Sadly spirograph no longer exsists in its original form.
On to grown up stuff now. Anybody  want some fresh raspberries? I picked over a gallon yesterday and didnt even make a dent.  I will be going out again this morning and everday for the next couple of weeks.  I will be making raspberry jelly today.   I will also be making infused raspberry vinegar.   This is so easy .............  2 cups sugar, 1/2 gallon of raspberries.  Put it in a 1 gallon jar and  pour in   distilled white vinegar to top of jar.  Put lid on jar. Let sit for a few weeks until raspberries are light colored and vinegar is dark colored. 
I will also be making  raspberry wine and fermented raspberry vinegar (just not today)..  While Jimmy and I were at the farmers market we were looking for  4 to 5 gallon  glass or crock jars.  We're gonna need a bunch of them.
