Thinking about selling fermented, acidified (pickled), or other
packaged foods at restaurants, farmers' markets or retail vendors? There
are a myriad of stringent guidelines that must be followed in order to
do so, including keeping certain records or perhaps acquiring a label,
getting a process authority letter and taking the multiday Acidified
