Gardeners with lots of vegetables have the option of canning, freezing,  or pickling their spring and summer bounty. Over four centuries ago, India began pickling in order to expand the lifespan of  the cucumber and countries from Asia, Europe, South American and North America followed suit with other foods. Whether you want to preserve out-of-season foods or begin a journey in pickling,  consider picking up a copy of  Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol published by Schiffer Publishing, LTD. This gorgeous hardcover resource features over 174 recipes compiled by various experts with nearly 200 full-colored photographs for the pickling lovers.

Inside,  Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol  you will find more than recipes for cucumbers, cabbage and eggs. Learn the basics of pickling with the essentials in prep work, storage tips and detailed ingredient lists. There's an extensive A to Z vocabulary list. The first three chapters are pickling with alcohol, oil and vinegar followed by salt pickling and sugar pickling. The salt and sugar chapters features a collection of selective recipes. I was especially interested in the steeped vinegar and oils sections.

Pickling enthusiast -- keep an eye out for special bottles and jars!

What are some of your favorite pickled delicacies? I have eaten pickled artichokes, chow-chow, mushrooms, okra and much more. I am excited to test various recipes with my family from Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol.  Have you tasted pickled cheese, fruits or fish?

If you need a gift idea for a special friend or family member, Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol might just be the gift! Or, maybe you could whip up something special for them and present it at a buffet, luncheon or dinner?

NEW & IMPROVED! Crosskix follows up their signature shoe (1.0) and launches 2.0 and APX styles for 2016!

NEW & IMPROVED! Crosskix follows up their signature shoe (1.0) and launches 2.0 and APX styles for 2016!

Run, jump and dash into the latest revolution in foam footwear this spring with Crosskix! Be part of the growing trend of the energizing, sleek and sporty Crosskix lifestyle and culture that is dominating the foam composite footwear market.

Crosskix is more than just another EVA shoe to slip on and casually wear. It’s pioneering functionality in mold-injected footwear for multi-purpose uses that comes in striking, attractive and sporty designs. Each shoe is designed and engineered for the best impact absorption, ventilation and water use. The stylish and functional athletic shoes are rugged enough for rigorous obstacle course races (TUFF MUDDER, etc), comfortable for marathon runs, and stylish for everyday casual wear in and out of the water!

Be one of the first to experience Crosskix’s APX and 2.0. The Kickstarter “super early bird” SPECIAL pricing will start at $34/pair (any style, color, or size). Suggested retail price starting at $64/pair. These prices are exclusively available during the Kickstarter campaign at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crosskix/crosskix-20-and-apx-new-and-improved?ref=discovery  until completion. Target delivery date is April 2016.

Crosskix’s 2.0 design is a follow-up to the signature 1.0 shoe with more improvements in design and functionality. Features include a fully adjustable tongue with slits on the medial and lateral sides for high insteps. A strong marine Velcro securely fastens the instep strap while submerged in water. Crosskix also added a “pin fastener” on the upper lateral side that can be inserted into pre-drilled holes on the instep strap. This allows users to wear the 2.0 as loose or as tight as they want.

The APX is designed to fit, feel and function like a high performance sneaker. New features include a full tongue with 9mm wide anti-chorine elastic specifically made for water — and will not dry up and crack. The instep can be adjusted to any height. Like the 2.0, the APX also incorporates stylish air and water vents and scupper drain holes on the rear medial and lateral sides of the shoe.

Both the 2.0 and APX are designed recreational and athletic uses and are perfect for water sports and recreational activities where the user needs to go from land to water and back, without having to switch shoes.  

Don’t miss this opportunity and be the first to experience the most comfortable and functional athletic shoe in foam composite footwear with the Crosskix’s new Kickstarter for the APX and 2.0 design — just in time for Spring/Summer 2016 delivery.

Great for all ages, these Crosskix designs are perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable all-purpose athletic shoe for everyday use. Please visit crosskix.com or contact sarah@chicexecs.com.
