Fermentation and Pickling (Thoughts from the Garden Episode 12)

Fermentation and pickling are different in that fermentation is when the veggies make a brine of it’s own juices where pickling uses a brine made from vinegar. They’re similar in that they preserve using a brine to store the veggies. Sandor Katz has a great book on fermenting called Wild Fermentation. I also recommend taking a class as well as reading a book on fermentation to get started.
