If you’ve never topped a fried egg or avocado toast with sauerkraut, we highly recommend you do so! Sauerkraut also makes a great topping on breakfast hash, hashbrowns, and omelets. 

Tuna & Chicken Salad:

These salad recipes often call for chopped pickles or relish. We like it with pickles, relish, AND sauerkraut! 
Luckily, Bubbies Fine Foods makes all three, and they’re all naturally fermented. 

Wrap It:

This fruit infused water idea sent in by @feedingmylittles looks extra refreshing. Adding berries or lemons to water is a natural way to add a splash of flavor.

How to remove the pickle smell from Bubbies Jars:

One key element to reusing Bubbies is getting rid of the pickle smell. After many experiments, we believe that we have found an excellent solution.

Using baking soda and water, make a thick paste and scrub the jar with a sponge until the entire jar is scrubbed. Let it sit overnight, then rinse out with hot water. This should get rid of the pickle smell! If the pickle smell is strong, then I would suggest giving the jar an extra hour of soaking in a bowl of hot water and vinegar.
