Pickled bread?

Does anyone know if it is possible to pickle bread? It's the last thing standing in my way to an idea I have. I just can't think of a way to do it and I'm not that familiar with pickling in the first place. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Why would you want bread to be soggy and turn into mush while tasting like pickling juice? You might as well drink straight pickling juice.

Companies do spray lactic acid onto potato chips to produce Sea Salt & Vinegar Chips, but that's about as close as I've seen to the kind of thing you seem to be talking about.

I do remember someone posted a recipe for pickled lettuce, and part of the recipe included putting a piece of bread inside the jar as it pickled. But thats the only time ive heard of something like this .

I know. That's the problem I'm having. What if I used a really, really hard flat bread? Or perhaps is there a substitute for bread I could use? Like some sort of soy product or something?

I am more curious about your "idea" if pickled bread is the last item you apparently need.

BTW, if you Google "Pickled Bread" don't be too surprised by the sexual aspect of that term.

I can't give away my idea yet. And about Google . . . yeah, I tried that and got the same results. (gross) That's why I came here, because I was tired of sifting through college humor sites to get the answers I need.

Instead of pickling the bread, maybe you can finely grind up some pickling spices and either incorporate it into the dough or coat the top of the bread ( as they do to bagels with onions, poppy seeds...). Maybe a little powdered vinegar to give it a tang.

Or, just as they make an olive loaf, maybe dehydrate some pickles, and incorporate them into the dough.

Good ideas, but it's important that it can be put into jars and kept for a decent length of time (a few months). Plus, the rest of the ingredients will be pickled as well and will be part of the bread so they need to stay together.
