    Just purchased a Fermenting Crock Sauerkraut Kimchi Harvest Pot 5 litre

    Making Kim Chi

    Curing & marinating small Arbequina olives

    Here's an article on how I cured Arbequina olives in just 5 weeks. I really thought it would take longer to cure them even though they are a small olive but I'm happy with the results!

    Cucumbers cold pickled in vinegar mix

    ClissAT your vegie bake looks wonderful, I am so envious. To be able to go out to the garden and pick a whole meal is my dream, as they say small steps lead to big things.

    Dehydrating

    Cooking first speeds up the dehydrating process as onions take forever. Are you rehydrating with boiling water? Hard to know, read the book, or google.I have only done my leeks and shallots.

    Cheaper preserving jar alternative to Mason jars

    I see now - they're a two piece lid similar to Mason jar tops. Easy to reuse. I'd love to find a universal lid which can fit to most standard jars regardless of the thread or mouth type.
