    Last year I thought I would try my hand at fermented pickles. The "real deal" as my book put it. It was a disaster. I have never made anything so disgusting!

    Every other day I skimmed the "scum" that looked a lot like maggots. It smelled pretty good, but after 3 weeks of hard work--:hit

    Anyone out there ever been successful? I really want to try it.

    Fermentation is supposed to be so good for you, and so easy... I am afraid I haven't even successfully made sauerkraut. Many of the folks on SSelf seem to make it sound easy- maybe you can get some advice over there? I would love to learn how to do it. Keep us posted!
