Preserving in

salt is February's challenge over at Food in Jars; but no meat can be involved?? Well I may try bacon anyway. I've done preserved lemons (there're some in the fridge right now), had passable success with sauerkraut, have several seasoned salts sitting around on the counter. Bacon intrigues me, though. Bruce Aidells has a recipe over at Fine Cooking,  but I think I'll use Diana Henry's version . . .

I buy local pickles and, after I eat them, I pop veggies in the brine and get a good pickling of my own going, all without having to learn anything!
