Made some pickles today.
I used the recipe from Nourishing Traditions, one of my favorite cookbooks. It's truly a life-changing look at food, and what passes for food in industrialized countries. This particular recipe took 2 weeks to pickle last time I tried it, but after just one week these babies were already getting soft. Gotta eat 'em up fast! I'm tossing out my kombucha scobys (more on this later) and starting my own, as I've had these for a long time. To grow your own scoby, see www.keepingthehome.com. One taste of home-brewed kombucha and I was hooked. I use a bag of peach-ginger flavored tea and it makes it even more delicious. I plan to blog about food and add some more recipes in the future.
