    As I read law for Va. There is no way I can sell fermented foods? What if I had licensed kitchen? Specifically pickles and hot sauce. With hot sauce, if I heat it after fermentation, pasteurized, than legal to sell, with ph 4.6 or lower?

    As far as I know, fermented foods are not allowed under VA’s basic cottage food law. However, you can sell up to $3k of acidified foods, including pickles (non-traditional) and hot sauce.

    You MIGHT be able to use VA’s home food processing law to sell more than that, but I’m not sure how many ag dept allow home food processing operations.

    And you can always use a commercial kitchen with the appropriate license (and likely required training) to produce these products without restriction.
