Question Pickled Veggies

Has anyone ever pickled veggies while on IP? I would love to pickle cucumbers, okra and onions but am only finding recipes with sugar (albeit minimal amounts- like 1/2 teaspoon). Do you think I could use Splenda instead?

THanks in advance

I do dill. Look up naturally fermented pickles. Much better for you than those with vinegar!

I think splenda would work fine! Worst case scenario, make a small batch, try it, and if it doesn't work you haven't wasted a lot of food. I used to hate pickled anything then when I was looking to spruce up my food choices I found I loved the punch of flavor!

sugar feeds the anerobic bacteria. It won't be in it when you eat it. Pickling includes fermentation your feeding micro organisms.
I today did another attempt at jar sour krout. I don't have a fermenting crock yet.
I also cleaned up my kombucha brewers and threw away extra scobies. I thinking about firing up the KT again. Have to let it almost go to vinegar to get the sugars all out. But I love raw plain kombucha.

For naturally fermented pickles, you don't need any added sugar. Just a salt brine. I think one of my main reasons for using the naturally fermented pickles is that they are a source of probiotics and promote good gut health

I've made many batches of spicy sweet refrigerator pickles with splenda. They turn out great! They've been a go-to snack on IP.
