cover with a boiled brine

50 grams of  Kosher salt

1/2 liter of water

it is sitting now

on the counter

to ferment

my goal is that the seeds taste kind of like a mixture of a salted caper and green peppercorn the tomatoes and garlic just a bonus of flavor! my focus was on the nasturtium!

vine leaves top the jar and keep everything else below the brine

I am winging it

so please wish me luck!

..who knows what will come of this pickle adventure!

 

I am also curious if this brine will tenderize the late summer vine leaves at all, or enough to use for cooking
