So I decided to try learning to pickle some things. I started with pickled chard stems, which I have now tried two ways. Mr B like both of the formulas I tried, but he said that the second one was even better. Sunshine got to sample the second formula, and he liked it too. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures. Maybe next time, after we grow our fall chard.
The other thing I have tried pickling was turnips. Sunshine loves turnips; however, the turnips were going soft and rubbery before he could eat them all
side note: that’s what happens when you plant as many fucking turnips as Sunshine planted, but that’s a post for another day
so I decided to try a pickle turnip that Tia and I found on the internet.
side note: here’s the link in case you’re interested
Sunshine and Mr B tried them last night and said that they were really good.
I’m glad I’m finding ways to preserve foods that don’t require a freezer, because freezers are quite electricity intensive, especially here in Texas.
