This month I am hosting the group as we shine the spotlight on pickles since July is National Pickle Month. So I asked the bloggers to "share your favorite recipes for making pickles, using pickles, etc. Lacto-fermented. Quick-pickled. It's all fair game!" Here's what they are sharing...
- Haitian Pikliz by Magical Ingredients
- Homemade Pub-Style Pickled Onions by Food Lust People Love
- Lemon Pickled Lotus Root by Palatable Pastime
- Pickled Ramps by Culinary Adventures with Camilla
- Pickled Rhubarb by A Day in the Life on the Farm
- Quick Pickled Zucchini and Red Onions by Karen's Kitchen Stories
- Stuffed Gunda / Lasoda Pickle With Mango by Sneha's Recipe
Funny story...they are so elusive that the cashier at the market this evening didn't know what they were. I had grabbed them from the bins next to the fava beans, but they didn't have a code or price.
Ramps, I informed her.
She looked all through her code book. She even sent someone to get the code from the produce department.
Yeah, I didn't see one either, but I just wanted to grab some since you don't carry them for very long.
Oh! Thanks. If I had known that was going to transpire, I would have grabbed a whole lot more of them. But I controlled myself and just nodded gratefully.
With this batch, I decided to o a quick pickle. It's super easy, but they are a fabulous addition to any cheese board.
- 1 to 2 handfuls of ramps, trimmed
- 1 cup vinegar (I used white vinegar)
- 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
- 1 Tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon whole coriander seeds
- 1 teaspoon whole dill seeds
- Also needed: lidded jar; nice to have: Pickle Pebble* (glass weight to keep the veggies submerged)
