or… what not to do!
1. If you are pickling cauliflower in brine left over from a jar of olives, make sure that all the cauliflower is completely submerged. Any tiny bits left poking out of the brine will mold and spoil the whole batch. Bleah.
2. When dehydrating zucchini chips for snacks, season lightly. I mean LIGHTLY. I now have salt chips suitable for a deer lick. Double bleah.
However, I have taken advice from the pros on the salt chips. The best suggestion was to powder them and add to meatloaf mix (leaving out any salt called for in the recipe). Instant Vitamin C!
Onward! I consider this my Crap Quotient. The quicker I make mistakes and learn from them, the quicker I’ll start doing it right.
