Drain and place them in a sterilized 1-quart glass jar with airtight lid. Pour out the boiling water and combine 1 tablespoon salt, 1 cup water, vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, peppercorns, caraway seed, fennel seed, cumin seed, and bay leaf in the saucepan.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
