Pickles… Sweet!

As promised, here is the recipe for my Sweet 3-Hour Pickles.

I know I said the dill pickles were my favorite but now I think I like these better. They really are ready to eat in three hours but you can keep them a lot longer than that.

I’ve always loved pickles and sauerkraut and now I know they are good for you… As long as you don’t put them on a bacon burger!

Dill Pickles… in 3 hours!

Can you believe you can make pickles in three hours? Delicious, crisp dill pickles? Hello! Three hours. That’s why they’re so crisp! A few of you asked for my pickle recipe so here it is. I tried a few more versions over the weekend and I like this one the best.

Just so you know, all fermented foods like pickles, sauerkraut, olives, even sourdough bread, provide healthy probiotics (aka friendly bacteria). Yes, even fermented yak milk from Tibet! Probiotics strengthen your immune system, aid in digestion & the absorption of nutrients, and they are great to take after antibiotics to bring back those friendly bacteria.

I also have a recipe for sweet pickles which I will post this week but the dill pickles are my favorite.  Click here for the recipe.
