My good friend is suffering from terrible morning sickness and she says that pickles calm her stomach. However, she finds vinegar pickles to be too acidic for her taste. Her family in Romania makes pickles using salt instead of vinegar. I was thinking of trying to make some pickles for her as a gift, but I am not sure how to proceed. Do you think salt pickles might be the same as lacto fermented vegetables? Do these vegetables have a slightly sour taste like a pickle?
