Make Your Own Pickles - SHIO-ZUKE (salt pickles)
My dear husband loves making his own pickles(cucumbers). He uses a pickle press that can be purchased at a most Asian Markets for about $20. You can buy pickling packets (Ajinihon Seasoning Powder for Japanese Pickle Asazuke) from the Asian Market or make your own. He makes his own recipes.
Would you like to know more? Here is a demonstration/recipe using the pickle press. If anyone is interested in my husbands recipes, I can post it on here. Thanks.
