Live culture fermenting is an increasingly popular way to pickle vegetables at home, and now with the Perfect Pickler, an even simpler DIY project is in store. Fermenting pickles is different from canning because of the live culture benefits. Vegetables like cabbage, cucumbers and beets (to name a few), found at the local grocery store quickly turn into probiotic foods with maximum health benefits. Eating just a small amount regularly can do wonders for anyone’s health. What is so innovative about DIY fermentation at home, is how flexible a new method—called jar top fermenting—can be. Now, thanks to the new Perfect Pickler, any individual can easily make pickles using raw veggies—or even more spectacular— to convert canned veggies into "renatured" pickles. Yes, even canned beets can be transformed into probiotic rich pickled beets! Renatured pickles are the opposite of denatured or pasteurized pickles. How so?
"All you need to do is take one quart of canned or jarred beets and add about an equal amount of raw veggies, like onions and garlic, along with the recipe spices. Fill this recipe into a two-quart canning jar. Stir up a brine and add to the jar. Twist on the jar top kit and in about four days the cooked beets and raw onions become lacto-fermented, chock full of beneficial enzymes and culture; just as if it had been all raw," said Perfect Pickler founder Bill Hettig. The lactic acid bacteria treat the cooked and raw ingredients the same. "Think of the possibilities. You can put up a garden of vegetables in the fall then transform them on demand into pickles by the half-gallon; just as you need them, anytime of the year. This has also been done using finished jars of dill pickles—they ferment into probiotic rich beauties using this 50-50 ratio of canned to fresh ingredients. This will reset the way we prepare our gardens and pickles," Hettig continued.
The Perfect Pickler was developed by this cooking instructor, who wanted to pickle vegetables in a sealed, airless container. He chose canning jars and had instant success. For over twenty years he has created simple signature recipes for these jar top kits. The kit actually attaches to your own canning jars, so it is inexpensive and quick to begin.
"When you consume culture-active foods, these microbes and their enzymes are in massive quantities. When you consume them you are practicing the digestion of the ancients. Your food quickly breaks down and becomes more digestible," says Hettig. "You may eat, and chew, and swallow, but your own body cells—over 100 trillion of them—may still not get enough of your meal if it’s all cooked or without enzyme rich support. When you combine culture-active foods with every meal, you boost your ability to nurture at the cellular level."
Pickling vegetables at home is a cost-effective way to add probiotics into an everyday diet. Jar top fermenting is fast becoming a vital tool for this in the modern kitchen.
