Recipe-phile: Cool summertime climes call for fermentation in the crock
In my book, the cool summer temperatures we've been having are good for one thing only: fermentation.
Here's a good rule: if it's too hot to light the oven, it's too hot to make fermented pickles. Sauerkraut, kimchi, fermented beans and anything else you'd care to sour in a big crock make their best progress during days that hover around 68 degrees and nights that dip a bit cooler.
