    Thanks for the link!

    Be sure the salt doesn't have any anti-caking ingredients, it can make the water cloudy. And filtered water (without chlorine) is best.

    I've made dill pickles, using just salt and spices (and an oak leaf). I've also used whey to be able to cut down on the salt. But now that the grapes are putting on their new leaves, I'm going to make some more. The tannins in the grape/oak leaves make the pickles crisper.

    How long does it take for the pickles to get righteous? I was lazily buying the angel hair preshredded cabbage and adding the whey off yogurt I no longer eat, but I want to do it with just salt. Also, I'm kind of wondering about the thermogenic spices. The kimchi and lots of other cultural foods have them and we had pickled pepper relish on our table as a kid, but just adults ate it. I think there is wisdom in it. I seem to turn red where there is brown fat and thought it was allergies and was given meds for it. I'm not sure now.


    The link is to a really good article that explains pretty much everything. The grains cause alcohol and acetic acid. Alcohol gets you drunk and acetic acid cleans your ears.

    Chocolate, adding turmeric and such is a great idea. If the pickles are sliced, or quartered, it only takes a few days at room temp for them to ferment, a week at most. Then you put them in the fridge and the process slows down almost to a stop. They taste great, kinda sparkly like carbonated water was added to them. :)

    I haven't made any whole pickles, but this year I plan on fermenting some baby cukes.

    Thanks for the link, I will have to check it out :) I just made my first batch of sauerkraut here not too long ago and it turned out pretty good. Now I can't wait to try something else.

    I have done a lot of fermenting over the years. Here are my index of recipes. The are some recommendations for books too. My favorite fermented food is kimchi; it also lasts the best and always makes it to the spring. I find fermented pickles are wonderful but must be eaten within 1-2 months of fermenting, earlier is better, otherwise they get soft and nasty. I've tried grape leaves and horseradish leaves. My husband wants to can pickles next year:

  7. I'm a total newbie...making sauerkraut right now. Actually, it's been a week, so it's probably ready! I'll have to check it when I get home!

    Thank you both. The website is a labor of love. Actually, I owe a debt of gratitude to all the people that helped me regain my health. If the website helps others, well, that is all that matters.
