Pickling lets you extend the life of almost everything you grow. You can pickle and eat your creation quickly, or you can let the jars sit for weeks to slowly preserve and flavor the produce.

As I mentioned while describing the pros and cons of pickling, the process, whether using vinegar or salt brine, safely preserves low-acid foods and can be varied to incorporate your favorite flavors and the size of your harvest. Pickling is a preservation technique but not a storage one; you need to pair it with canning or refrigerating. Some tips and tricks will help you successfully make pickles.

I can hardly believe it: Twice as Tasty turns 4 this month! It’s been a year of growth and change, particularly with my focus in recent months on writing my first cookbook.

Pickling Cookbook Update

I apologize for regular no blog post today. I just filed the last of 125 recipes for my forthcoming pickling cookbook (scheduled for release this fall). Hooray! But I must admit: I’m out of words at the moment. Look for a fresh post next week. In the meantime, I proudly present some beautiful test batches for your viewing pleasure. This book is going to be delicious.

My first cookbook is scheduled for release in fall 2020. Learn more at TwiceasTasty.com.
