Pickling is an old form of preserving foods with added health benefits!

Not only can you try pickling several different vegetables, but you can vary the mixture to achieve different flavors. Salt brine pickling boosts fermentation that allows beneficial bacteria to grow. Foods such as sauerkraut and kimchi are good examples.

The beneficial bacteria help improve the bacteria in your gut which helps your other body systems as well. Your immune system and your brain rely on healthy gut bacteria to function optimally, for example.
