My Kids' Favorite Ferment (food-probiotic)

I bought this jar less than a week ago.
 It's a few tablespoons from being gone.  Almost single handedly, the kids have eaten it.  I did add some to potato salad (it is also yum in deviled eggs).
This jar came from Drug Emporium.  Whole Foods sells Bubbies sauerkraut, but I don't think they sell the dill pickle relish.  

If your family is hesitant to eat ferments - like sauerkraut, this is an excellent "baby step" or one to start with.  It tastes strikingly similar to pasteurized dill relish. 

Fermented foods (or food-probiotics) not only nourish the body but also protect us from harmful organisms while contributing to immunity.  According to this article from the American Psychological Association 95% of the body's supply of serotonin is manufactured in the gut - this influences mood and GI activity.  You cannot have good overall health if you have poor gut health.
And the price is right, too.  It won't break the bank if your people don't like it.  (Just pass it on to my family.  We'll gobble it up.)
