I make it often.
I add mustard and caraway seeds.
Lovely, and good for you.

I'm very open to suggestions for other salt based pickles.

My next book to read is Sandor Katz - The art of fermentation. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Art-Fermentati ... andor+katz

Although I've also just been given John Campbells book.

There are always more books than time available.

... preserving some lemons (link) is worth well more than the time/effort involved in preparing them ... the flavours they add to tagines, casseroles, curries, even fishy pasta dishes are amazing :wink:

Sorry to interject Mashman, I've not made sauerkraut either :oops:
Cheers, PhilB
