Good Stuff for your Tummy!

My Chef friend John Biswanger sent me a nice article on the benefits from " Fresh Pickles" , also called "fermented pickles"

These pickles never hit any heat at all and are never canned.They ferment the way grapes would for wine only they make vinegar. Natural lactic acid , pro biotic bacteria that is so good for the digestion in your tummy. In fact many folks drink the fresh fermented pickle juice only. Gilbert Schmidt even toasts pickle shots with his daughter. Athletes for years have been drinking fresh pickle juice after a hard workout to relieve sore muscles.

Also they are incredibly delicious. Each batch makes it's own special flavor depending on the fermentation. My 2 fav's to pickle are cukes and cauliflower with carrots coming in a close 3rd.


Ancient Sources not only refer to the nutritional benefits of pickles, but claim that they have long been considered a beauty aid. Cleopatra attributed her good looks to a hearty diet of pickles.
