  1. I'm sure you all have seen this a hundred times already, but I'm about to make my yearly order and thought I'd share the info.

    Soooo, Kalkwasser, which is German for lime, does not contain any lime at all. The name comes from the main compound used: Calcium hydroxide.

    Mrs Wages Pickling Lime is "food grade calcium hydroxide with no additives or preservatives."

    My LFS sells the 450g jar for 24 bucks. Drs F&S sell it for $18 plus shipping. And Mrs Wages website sells 454g jars for 3.85 (or a case of 12 jars for $45.)

    Not a bad deal I think. =)
