What's Good For the Gut is Good For the Gout...

No, I do not have gout, but I do have arthritis. I have been reading a lot about the wonders of apple cider vinegar and its ability to reduce inflammation; especially if the cider has "the mother" growing in it. Here is a tasty recipe which includes my new found fondness for vinegar... "Fermented Vegetables." Enjoy...
This is the final product; crisp sliced vegetables in a tangy sauce.  First slice and then salt veggies of your choice...

 Then add a new layer, slice and salt and repeat... 
 Lots of salt...
Place wax paper and a weight on top of your salted vegetables.
 Here's how I weighted my vegetables...
Wait an hour and then rinse your vegetables thoroughly with cold water. Rinse ALL of that salt out of those veggies.
Dry them well with a paper towel.
 Add these ingredients for the marinade...
Two T. cider vinegar, two T. olive oil, 1/4 t. red pepper flakes, 1/4 t. black pepper, 1/4 t. minced garlic, sprig of dill. Refrigerate and enjoy. This will keep up to a week. Eat your fermented vegetables before your meal. They say cholesterol levels will even out if you do this daily. And, bye bye gout...
