I have to admit that as a child I loved zesty pickles but really really hated bread & butter pickles. The cloying sweetness of a commercially-made vinegar-based bread & butter pickle was just so one dimensional. Like with many things, the real food version is so much better than anything from a national brand.
Enter the lacto-fermented bread & butter pickle. The flavors are balanced, slightly salty, slightly savory, and slightly sweet. They are perfect as a probiotic component of any meal, but especially in a chicken salad or on a grass-fed hamburger.
Like my recipe for savory lacto-fermented pickles, this fermentation process lends itself to probiotic goodness. Think of lacto-fermentation as a kind of pre-digestion. Your belly will thank you if you add fermented veggies and foods to your diet.
