      @purpleXpotion Search it on youtube. If you watched it already. The exact and correction must pure laughter. If you don't. You are a karen.

      @TomTom X Quared Bruh, no one’s even _legit_ mad.. just a little confused. We’re talking about a _frickin’ pickle_ here..😅 It’s really not that serious!! 😂
      Go find another Karen. 👅

      @purpleXpotion Congrats you win in the argument!!!
      Why? this is why? I see the pattern on your replies. But I know how to defeat karen on public chat. It is NOT TO REPLY BACK THE KAREN AT ALL. Leave karen at top of the argument because eventually he/she will pull back down and sometimes when it's too high, the fall will be catastrophic. And the challenge is to figure out how to recover from it.
      In short grow up. That's spirituality!

    Would this fast pickling method damage the cells or general structure making it less crunchy? Could be cool to see a comparison

    I can’t imagine how crispy those pickles would be… This has to be second to only a Kenny& Ziggys pickle, which is a sort of partially pickled pickle. I theorize that this vacuum process produces a delicious and very crispy pickle, like you said.

      @Niall Tracey From what I understand during the pickling process the acid in the solution replaces the water in the product through osmosis, lowering the pH of it and making it more shelf stable over time.
      The difference between pickling with a vinegar solution and with a salt brine promoting the growth of lactobacillus is that the vinegar solution already contains the acids that replace the water in the product and does not require fermentation while the salt brine requires the bacteria to create the acids first.
      I may be wrong but the only acidophilic bacteria that would be useful is the one that creates acetic acid (vinegar) which if you are using a vinegar solution is not necessary to create more vinegar and I am not sure any of that bacteria is present in the products you are trying to pickle or in the vinegar itself. If there was a secondary fermentation there should be pressure building up from the gasses being created, I have not noticed that when pickling with a vinegar solution during the times I have pickled things with that method.

      @DynamicWorlds that sounds more intelligent than I can actually do

    • DynamicWorlds
      DynamicWorlds 3 months ago

      The main problem is the vacuum chamber.
      If you could get a vacuum chamber sufficient to cause this set up to not use a compressor, but be basically a space in a piston chamber hooked up to a giant flywheel or something, you could set up something with an absolutely absurd throughput rate turning cucumbers in brined vinegar into refrigerator pickles about as fast as you could get them in the jars and close said jars.
      Set up the entire thing and you could be shipping out pickles the day the cucumbers for them came in.
      Alternatively, if you could miniaturize that kind of setup (also avoiding a compressor because those are _loud)_ using another flywheel or a capacitor bank or something and have it be reliable and easy and cheap to maintain, you could sell it to sandwich shops to have their own pickles made fresh to order for every sandwich.
      Could legit be making the pickles while it was being toasted/in a panini press with a pickling brine unique to the shop (or even sandwich).
      If anyoneone has the know-how to make a vacuum chamber that can run without a compressor and fit into the workings of either a bottling plant or sandwich shop THAT is how you make money off this idea.

      By stating that these are 'poor pickles' and replying to other comment with 'I was raised to like X instead' -
      Your message comes off as condescending and trying to put your preference above others, as if it matters.
      I'm enjoying the vacuumed pickles because I want to and I can.
      And so can the others.

    But in India cucumber pickles are rare,
    We usually prepare pickles out of raw mango,garlic and lemon etc, that comes with the red liquid which is salty,sweet, spicy at the same time.
    And it tastes really good.
    And especially the pickles prepared by my grandma are the best!!

    I wonder if any pickle businesses could start doing this, as well as adding in other flavors since they won't have to worry about sugars and things growing bacteria with time

      yeah, pickling is practically doing the same thing as this, it's just a slower process and makes use of bacteria instead of artificial vacuuming

      Almost all pickle companies and hone picklers do this process, they probably just don't realize it. In canning, once the food is placed in jars they are sealed then heated in a water bath or placed in a pressure cooker. This causes the air inside of the jars to expell out the lids and upon cooling a vacuum is formed inside of the jar. That is why you get a pop when you first open a pickle jar and why there is a pressure tab on the lid.

    I need to have a vacuum chamber so I can make instant pickles too.

    Gonna beg my mama for a vacuum chamber. Dude, you have no idea the monster you've just created. I love pickles so much I'm gonna reek havoc on this household

    Okay. Now I can't help but wonder if you ever tried using your chamber to assist in any molecular gastronomy related experimentation.
    I think of how low the pressure is in a crock pot, and how a consumer sous vide is usually just something to regulate the temperature to a very finite degree, when sous vide actually means "under vacuum", and therefore I believe that the traditional sous vide cooking must be under some sort of additional pressure when compared to a standard crock pot that you would hook a sous vide node into. So, just spitballing, but there should probably be a hundred or more other simple, intuitive applications that wouldn't require an insane amount of culinary background to make happen.

    This should totally be done in science classes in school when a teacher has a vacuum chamber for a lesson instead of just making water boil.

      @Chase Goddard by your logic what exactly is learned from any use of a vacuum chamber in classes? This can be used in those same lessons

      As a chem teacher. What topic would be taught here? Diffusion vapor pressure? It's a great trick but almost every youtube video didn't really teach chemistry, it excites curiosity. It help kids say "that's cool now lets learn more in class".

      @Mochi we were allowed to do pretty much whatever we wanted in high school though, up until then the schools wouldn’t really let you do anything, but the second you hit high school it’s just “well for chemistry today we are gonna learn how to make ice cream” n my other teacher would let her dog pull me around on my skateboard around school, yet my psychology teacher had to take abreak from school (assuming it was a suspension) because he decided to teach everything his class was supposed to about rather than what is “okay” one of the best teachers I’ve ever had, Mr. Jenkins is a beast.

      @Mochi well we once in school made salmiak (ammonium cloride) (salty powder used in candy) no idea what the english word is. In school which is literally made with made with 2 highly dangerous chemicals hydrochloric acid and ammonia. And ate it.

    I somehow doubt that a vaccum chamber pickle can match the taste of a true time consuming pickle. Very cool video though.

    You might have accelerated the osmosis phenomena by doing so, but to have a ''perfect'' pickle you'll need to add some lactobacilli bacteria to develop all the flavour of pickles, not just the acidity

    His reactions are always "Amazing" or "So cool", right in line with this. I'd have laughed so hard if just to switch it up he took a bite and was like "This pickle tastes like shi-" and then the video cuts.

    Used to see TV ads for a vacuum marinating chamber. It wasn't a good vacuum as it was achieved with a hand pump but you could put it on this spinning base to keep it tumbling to keep everything covered in the marinade.
    Really curious if you could speed marinate some meats and test it with other methods, maybe make this a food channel idk 😶
