On another note, the pickles are in at the farmers market. I started some New York sour pickles this morning. I didn't have any whey, so I threw a teaspoon of kefir into the mix. And the only oak tree I have on the property is this weird saw tooth oak. I hope the leaves have tannin in them. That is what makes the pickles crisp, without using alum.
