Pickles for Pickles
Momma decides that this year's harvest will include pickling many of their extra garden vegetables. They decide to pickle cabbage for Martin and Daddy, eggs for Sylvia, and beets for Momma - but when Sylvia insists they need to pickle something for their kitty named Pickles, Momma is at a loss. She can't think of anything cat's eat that could be pickled. Sylvia is resolved to find something and spends the better part of a day following the kitty around seeing what she might eat.

Sparkle Kitchen: Homemade Sauerkraut
Pickled cabbage — which most of you probably know as sauerkraut — is one of my favorites, too. It’s amazing with spicy bratwursts, adds a nice tang to grilled cheese, and even makes a tasty side dish on its own.
Sparkle Kitchen: Pickling the Extras
We got into the pickling mood in the Sparkle Kitchen and created some of our own pickled vegetables! These recipes are perfect for both leftover green beans and beets — particularly after Thanksgiving!
