I thought these looked like chocolate turtles, but those sweets have caramel in them. These were just two leftover ingredients from other things - melted dark chocolate and pecan pieces - and I didn't want to waste them. So I stirred the pecan pieces into the melted chocolate and dropped them by tablespoons onto a piece of parchment paper. I pressed one more pecan piece into the top. Super easy.
If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
Something similar to this, (that is also delicious) is chocolate over chow mien noodles. You know, the crunchy ones that you find atop salads? Those. Mmm. So good.ReplyDelete
