How to guide on Quick Pickles, Its as easy as salt, sugar, pickle.

Intro

You might be saying “didn’t you just do a post on pickling?” and I will counter with “have you ever watched more than one video on how to set up a triangle?” Exactly, the exciting part about cooking is that there are endless combinations of flavors and techniques that result in countless different outcomes. Sometimes they are delicious and you will find yourself counting out the exact amount of grains of salt you put into a recipe to make it just right again. Sometimes they suck and should just throw them in the trash and order out. But experimentation is the root to finding what works and does not work. Lucky for you people have been cooking for generations and passing along  techniques they have mastered in a fine tuned and easy to understand way. Just like black belts teaching a seminar on a kimura lock. This method of pickling is no different…I mean it is because well its a way to prepare food and not a way to tear a shoulder. Long story short, there are many paths to a certain destination. In this how to guide today our destination just so happens to be pickles. So come travel down a different path than we did a few weeks ago.

A guide to pickling, a break from BJJ videos is sometimes needed.

Intro

Some people say cucumbers taste better pickled. I say most all vegetables taste better pickled. Have you ever had a plain piece of seared salmon with some brown rice and a side of steamed broccoli for dinner? Of course you have, and probably way more often than you would like to admit. This guide is not to say to stop eating that but is to improve on that one word we all hate, “boring.” We all hit peaks and valleys when it comes to our training and the same goes for our taste buds. If we have the same meal the same way too often we get stagnant with it and are no longer enjoying eating, what is the point of living if we aren’t doing that? Well one great way that is easy, affordable and is general fun to do is to pickle your own vegetables. Adding them to some of your mainstay dishes for a nice change of pace that will really revive the meal and awaken your taste buds! Also they aren’t horrible for you either. Soon enough instead of salivating over seeing a dry aged rib eye at the butcher counter and thinking about it seared to a nice medium rare you will find yourself staring at the produce isle and being flooded with thoughts of what flavors you would use to pickle each and every vegetable. With this guide to pickling you will add as much technique to your cooking game as you have within your BJJ game!
