Fermented and pickled vegetables

Home made fermented and pickled vegetables may be very beneficial to the overall health as they contain probiotics and may promote a healthy gut flora. These fermented and pickled veggies can increase nutrient bio-availability in the body, and improve the digestibility of the food and even the foods that are consumed along with it. Why home made and not store bought, you may ask! Typically commercial food processors develop techniques to help standardize more consistent yields, and may not consider that each type of fermented/pickled food has specific, unique requirements and production methods. Enjoy these home made, delicious veggies along side your lunches and dinners, and receive the many benefits that they provide!
