Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
On one of my trips to Puglia, I discovered a unmarked jar in a restaurant in Martina Franca. One had peppers one had eggplant. The bell pepper one is a local specialty with a kick of chili. One bite and I was in love!
Sweet peaches, a nit of heat from chili peppers with brown sugar to bring in some caramel flavour and mellow roasted garlic! Amazing on baked brie but it will be great on roast pork too.
