    Probiotic Rich Dill Pickles

    From an anecdotal standpoint, I respectfully disagree. Since I started eating home fermented foods, my daily powerful gut ache changed from daily to once a week, then once every few weeks, then now none at all. I haven't had the hideous pain at all in months now. The pain was so powerful, I was sobbing at times. All I did was add fermented foods. I just eat a spoonful of my carrot sauerkraut on a sandwich or salad, and I sip on some Kombucha throughout the day, and occasionally sip some black bean miso I bought. So, while anecdotal, eating probiotics worked for me. And, I am forever greatful.

    Thank you for that. I was definitely sensing an ulterior motive/agenda with this guy. Eating healthy probiotics in fermented foods works. It worked for me in ridding myself of powerful gut aches. And, in the several blogs I follow, I'm reading of hundreds and hundreds of others cured as well. So, I think that what you see under a microscope may be irrelevant to how the gut actually works.

    Agreed, the cloudy water means that you have good bacteria. And, you can empty that brine out and add fresh water if you want. But, save the brine! Those good bacteria will speed up the process in your next batch.

    Thank you, these were fun!

    Actually, vegan and "organic" are not the same things, but you're right to look for "raw" sugar. Refined cane sugar requires bone char (animal bones) to process, and that includes the brown sugar, since it's just white sugar mixed with molasses. So, if you get "raw" sugar, or sugar made from another source than cane (such as beet sugar or coconut sugar--they don't require the bone char), then you'll be safe. You're a good friend for trying.
