Another thing he told me is for pickle you can
build a sort of warming device instead of buying a pickle pot.
No matter what route you go for a pickle pot, be sure the one you get has
a GLASS or GLAZED pot. Some of the crock pots (other warming gizmos too)
have pots made from metal or other materials that are attacked by pickle.
Nobody wants everything tossed in the pickle pot to come out copper plated.
