Piquant, Pungent, Puckery…Perfect! Celebrate National Pickle Day
Posted By jmccharen On November 13, 2012 @ 9:00 am In Food & Drink | Comments Disabled
November 14th is National Pickle Day , and to help you celebrate we’ve put a selection of books on sale full of pickling and preserving recipes that range from simple, dill-scented cucumber pickles to funky, lacto-fermented salsa, and much more.
Pickling is an ancient method of preserving fresh food — especially vegetables. Salts draw out moisture and encourage bacteria that turn things tangy instead of terrible.
Your growing season is probably over by now (except for you lucky warm-climate readers whom we here in Vermont have already started to envy, and will not stop until mud season dries up next May!) but if you put up some pickles this summer they’re probably perfect by now.So pop open a mason jar of dilly beans  or a can of corn relish  and peruse our pick of pickling books! All of the books below will be on sale until November 20.
