Beer, Pickles, and...

What three endless food supplies would you take if you were going to be stranded on an island? (Imagine your nutritional needs have been met, these are a bonus!) - See more at: http://www.veganmofo.com/#sthash.SPmzp9G8.dpuf

 Vegan MoFo Day 21: What three endless food supplies would you take if you were going to be stranded on an island? (Imagine that your nutritional needs have been met, these are a bonus.)
 
I wasn't sure exactly what "all your nutritional needs are met" included. Because I guess if I had access to the right kind of grains I could make my own beer. But I'm crap at making beer, and if I'm going to be hanging out on an island, I'll definitely want to dig my toes into the sand and watch the sunset with a tipple in hand from time to time. So, my first item is beer and/or cider.

Recently, I've been enjoying Crispin Bare Naked cider. I think most of their ciders are vegan, except for the ones that contain honey. As for beer, I'm a lager girl and don't need anything fancy; PBR or Kokanee will do and both are vegan friendly.

Pickles and ferments: I could not live without them! I eat some sort of pickled or fermented vegetable every day. Dill pickles are my favorite, but greek peproncini, and sauerkraut come in a close second.
Over the summer I made a double batch of crock pickles, which are just fermented in a salt brine, and a batch of vinegar pickles.


The vinegar pickles are on the left and the crock pickles on the right. The vinegar pickles are fresh and crunchy, but they're not as good as the crock pickles--I've already eaten up the whole batch.

Now, this is where I'm in a quandary: do I want my third item to be hot sauce or sourdough bread? I still haven't decided.

Being stranded on an island with plenty of food and a selection goodies sounds pretty good to me. I hope we're all on the same one--it would be a vegan paradise!

    1. I agree, I think maybe we should look into claiming an island for ourselves! We could bring all the animals there and keep them safe with us.

  3. How did I not think about beer!!!!!

    I would like to try homemade pickles one day My mom used to make the best dill pickles ever.

    I'd miss bread on that island.

    In what type of supermarket did you find that list of vegan beer? That's neat.

    1. You should get you mom's recipe and make some!

      I think you're right...bread wins over hot sauce.

      The sign was in a Whole Foods.

  4. Good thinking being on the same island (I was secretly hoping our vegan buds would hook us up!) As for the beer - how did I forget to bring that on my island?!? You are brilliant!

  6. Nothing like an ice cold beer while staring at blue water, that's for sure. Didnt realize you were such a Pickle fan.

  7. A choice between hot sauce and sourdough is a tough one - I think hot sauce would just sneak it! With you all the way on pickles though. Gherkins for the win!

  8. I've not a hot sauce fan so I'd say go for the bread then you can make pickle sandwiches! Love that the store has a vegan beer section.
