    Wait till you try it - the difference between fermented and unfermented pickles is like the difference between store and homemade 'kraut.

    It's basically the same process.

It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    I have never been across the way
    Seen the desert and the birds
    You cut your hair short
    Like a shush to an insult
    The world had been yelling
    Since the day you were born
    Revolting with anger
    While it smiled like it was cute
    That everything was shit.

    Mum makes hers sliced when there's extra cucumbers. My stepdad is in charge of the baby cucumber pickles, which are grown and harvested especially for his pickle jars. But mum pickles any left over garden produce.
