Yellow Foods + Pickled Golden Cauliflower #7Days7ColorsChallenge


Here we are at Day Three of the #7Days7ColorsChallenge! You can read more about it: here. Today is brought to you by the color yellow. Yellow is my older son's favorite color, so we eat a lot of yellow foods. Ever since he was small, if I served stuffed bell peppers, I might have used green or red or orange. He had to have the yellow one!


Earlier this summer I saw a baby pineapple from Melissa's at our local grocery store. Naturally, I bought it. It was adorable and delicious. Here are a few recipes from the blog that were yellow...


Pickled Golden Cauliflower
A friend recently commented that I pickle a lot of things. I guess that's true. I love the pop of flavor that pickles add to my plate. I recently posted about Pickled Pumpkin and Pickled Beans. Pickled Radishes and Pickled Blueberries are some of my favorites. I've even Pickled Shrimp

When a friend gave me a case of golden cauliflower, I steamed some, grilled some as steaks, riced a few as a grain substitute, but the lion's share of the cauliflower was turned into pickles. Just today, I sat at my desk with a jar and a fork and downed some florets between meetings. They are so easy to make.

Ingredients makes 2 pints
  • 6 C golden cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces and blanched
  • 2 fresh bay leaves leaves
  • 2 t yellow mustard seed, divided
  • 2 t dill seed, divided
  • 2 t fennel seed, divided
  • 2 t pink peppercorns, divided
  • 3 C vinegar (I used an apple cider vinegar)
  • 3 C organic sugar
  • 1/2 C salt

Procedure
In each jar, place 1 bay leaf, 1 t mustard seed, 1 t dill seed, 1 t fennel seed, and 1 t pink peppercorn. Pack the cooked cauliflower to the shoulder of the jar.

In a small saucepan, bring sugar, vinegar, and salt to a boil. Pour the vinegar over the cauliflower and cover with a lid.

Place jars into a water bath and process for 10 minutes. Remove from water bath and let cool on a kitchen towel. Let cool for 12 to 24 hours. Check the seal and let stand in the cupboard for at least 2 weeks before eating.

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
