A God I Can Believe In

Roguszys is a deity from Eastern European countries responsible for causing the pickling of vegetables , some of these practices are very popular in Lithuanian cuisine. The use of such vegetables accompanying salty taste has given rise to many pagan celebrations in Lithuanian culture in the process of salting and subsequent pickling and fermentation.

Mention of Roguszys (or Ruguszys, according to some sources) is mentioned in Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods, a cookbook cum testimonial to the benefits of  fermented food by Sandor Katz, who might actually have constructed an altar to the deity based on his enthusiasm for fermentation.

Worship of Ninkasi, the Sumerian goddess of beer and brewing, is also acceptable.
