#KitchenMatrixCookingProject's 51 Weeks

I have long been a fan of Mark Bittman - the way he views food and cooking seem to be good for us and good for the planet. For 2018, I decided to cook my way through his kitchen matrix - Kitchen Matrix by Mark Bittman* - and invited some fellow foodie bloggers to join me.

Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm and Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories were the only gals who took me up on the project. Here's an easy matrix to look through the fifty-one weeks of posts. We also have a Pinterest Board, if you want to see things there.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

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 !
