Bread & Butter Pickles

Anova Culinary

If you are like me and like the perfect balance between sweet and tangy, then these are the pickles for you. I have fond memories of making vats of these with family and friends. It was fun doing this but also very labor intensive. Doing these sous vide makes it simple and no canning equipment is required. Just cook, store in the fridge and enjoy!!!


David LaForce

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice.  I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention.  I translate books on tape for refugees, I write award-winning operas, and I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.  I woo people with my godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed and I can cook thirty-five minute brownies in twenty minutes.  I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru. Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants.  I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Cubs and I am the subject of numerous documentaries.  When I am bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard.  I enjoy urban hang-gliding and on Wednesdays, after work, I repair electrical appliances free of charge. I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst and ruthless bookie.  Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear.  I don’t perspire, children trust me and I bat 400. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail.  I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes and last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration.  My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy, I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket and I have performed several covert operations for the CIA.  I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining from that evening.  I sleep once a week and when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair.  While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a  group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams and the laws of Physics do not apply to me. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery and I have spoken with Elvis.
