Pickled Peppers for #FoodieExtravaganza


Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month. This month - I am hosting - I invited bloggers to come up with pickles since National Pickle Day is November 14th.

We hope you all enjoy our delicious pickled creations this month and come back to see what we bring for you next month.

Posting day is always the first Wednesday of each month. If you are a blogger and would like to join our group and blog along with us, come join our Facebook page Foodie Extravaganza. We would love to have you! If you're a spectator looking for delicious tid-bits check out our Foodie Extravaganza Pinterest Board! Looking for our previous parties? Check them out HERE.

The Pickled Posts...in alphabetical order of recipe title

Ingredients makes 2 large jars
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1/2 t pink peppercorns
  • a variety of peppers (I used peppers from our High Ground Organics CSA box and jalapeno peppers from my friend's garden)
  • 3 C cold water
  • 1-1/2 C vinegar (I used an unfiltered apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 T salt (I used large flake red Hawaiian salt)
  • 6 garlic cloves

Procedure
Chop the jalapeno peppers into pieces. I used the other peppers whole. Divide the bay leaves and pink peppercorns between your jars. Then layer in the peppers and garlic cloves. Press everything firmly into the jar.

In a medium saucepan, stir together the water, vinegar, sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat.

Pour the vinegar mixture into the jars. Cover and let stand for at least 24 hours before opening. The pickles will keep, refrigerated, for up to two weeks.

  3. So do you use pickled peppers as a snack, on sandwiches / salads, pizza, etc. I really want to branch out a little and get more comfortable with pickling and peppers but what's the best way to use them?! These look amazing.

  4. We love pickled peppers at our house but I've never considered making my own. That must change! Thanks so much for hosting this month, Camilla!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
