That’s just one reason to not sour on the flavor. Surely, you’ve had a pickle before! Ever had a pickled egg? How about a pickled cow’s tongue? Yes, it’s a thing. Read on to learn more about sweet ways to make your food last longer with Kitchology’s Eat.Better app.
A Lost Food Art
Will pickling become a lost food art? I know my parents used to do it. I don’t, though. I’ve eaten pickled food, but what about millennials? Have they tested the briny waters beyond pickles and sauerkraut?
It’s Popular For A Reason
Not familiar with pickling? It’s simply a means of preserving food through a water solution containing salt, vinegar or both. You may add additional seasoning, but it’s not necessary. Food prepared this way can be sweet or savory. If you’re looking for a sound way to stretch your dollar, this idea makes sense. After undergoing the chemical process, your egg, or cabbage or anything you want will last for months.
Bloating Will Be A Thing Of The Past
While most pickled food has nutritional advantages, a few pickles do not. Eating fermented foods, like sauerkraut or pickled vegetables, introduces probiotics to your gut to help balance microflora. They can help rebalance good bacteria and eliminate problems such as bloating, fatigue, diarrhea, inflammation and headaches. Read more here about how fermented foods help your gut.
It’s not like pickling food is hard either. It does require time though. Try it out with these few simple recipes.
