FF: The Lacto Pickle Kit from Farm Steady

Making your own pickles at home is easier than you think – especially if you have the Lacto Pickle Kit I found from the fine folks at Farm Steady.

About the Lacto Pickle Kit from Farm Steady:

“The easiest way to make lacto-fermented pickles at home. Your favorite kinds of pickles—from deli-style full sours and half sours, to classic dills and fiery hot pickles—all get their signature snappy crunch and tart pucker not from vinegar, but from fermentation. Specifically lacto-fermentation. This completely reusable kit will help you master the art of pickling. Simply cover your cucumbers with brine, recreate the effects of a traditional oak barrel by adding a black tea for tannins, top with your lid and airlock, and you’ll have crisp, unbeatable pickles in just a few days.”

FF: The Pure Vermont Maple Syrup from Mount Mansfield

Meanwhile, there is nothing like 100% pure maple syrup from Vermont – and none better at that than the Pure Vermont Maple Syrup I found from the fine folks at Mount Mansfield Maple Products.

About the Pure Vermont Maple Syrup from Mount Mansfield Maple Products:

“Our pure Vermont maple syrup is thick, smooth and silky and available in all grades from the lightly colored golden delicate with a sweet and modest maple flavor to the strong hearty full-bodied dark robust.  For pancakes and ice-cream we recommend the lighter two grades, and for those who prefer a stronger flavor or have culinary motives darker grades will be best.  Essentially, the darker the maple syrup, the stronger the maple flavor.”
