Pickling is more than a form of food preservation. It is also a way of turning mild-flavored vegetables and fruits into crunchy, tangy side dishes and intensely flavored condiments. In Pickling Everything, food preservation expert Leda Meredith covers the ins and outs of home pickling, explaining the differences between lacto-fermented probiotic pickles and vinegar-based pickling and how to pickle and can safely. In addition to favorites like cucumbers, green beans, and beets, she includes recipes for nuts, legumes, eggs, and meats, encouraging readers to try something new. The 80+ recipes include:
Half Sours (deli dills)
Tabasco-Style Hot Sauce
48-Hour Mixed Garden Pickles
