Making wild vinegar is really neat, but what happens when you use that up and it's not cider pressing season yet? I tested out a theory using store-bought, pasteurized cider and the "gunk" left in my raw cider jar. Did it work? "Mother" says yes!
Kimchi is the smelly-cheese of the pickle world. If you’re like me, once you've had it few times, the smell becomes appealing, the taste even more so. Loads of garlic, ginger, hot chiles & a little fish sauce, turn this pickle into stinky heaven.
Sour fermented brine separates this glorious hot sauce from the rest. Ferment your hot peppers now for canning salsa or winter enchiladas, and you'll be rewarded with sauce that tastes like peppers, not vinegar.
