    I am so going to be there.

    I make sauerkraut. I use nothing but cabbage and salt. Nature does the rest. Using vinegar to pickle foods doesn’t produce bacteria that are good for you. Lacto fermentation is where it’s at!

    I’m disappointed no one has posted this yet

    Yumms. Green mango, cauiliflower and red chiles are a good combo for pickling as well.

    I’m gonna bring in a pickle, stick a fork in either end, hook the thing up to a 240V DC current, and talk about God.

    To any one interested in doing their own pickling I would highly recommend the book: Wild Fermentation by Sandor Katz. I bought this book for my wife last December, since then we have made our own sauerkraut, pickled beets, greenbeens, okra, jalapenos with carrots and onions, garlic, and of course, cucumbers. All raw and all fermented. We were amazed at how easy it is to pickle and how much tastier it is than anything you can buy in a store. If your not ready to invest in a book. Check out the author’s website where he has recipes for sauerkraut and cucumbers. I would recommend starting with the sauerkraut. Happy pickling!

    wolfiesma @13: I just ate dinner, but you made me hungry all over again with that description\.

    There is a company in the East (NY State) called Hawthorne Valley Farm that make some of THE BEST Sauerkraut I’ve ever had. Raw baby raw!

    Every time I see a pickle I think of Lucky Charms.

  13. wolfiesma says:

    A woman at our local herb room was telling me about the pro-biotic benefits of raw sauerkraut. I need to make my own…. but I did get some from the store that was really good. I put it on olive oil drizzled german farm bread with (brewer’s) yeast and some Bragg’s liquid amino. Food that good almost makes me want to be a vegetarian.

    Mmm, pickles.

    What’s the difference in taste compared to your usual store-bought vinegar pickle? I would just come and find out but that Metrolink wreck has given me the willies.

    Also, I think I need to alert Roger from I-Mockery about this.
