Jack is a great cheese to make at home. Spiced with cumin seeds and smoked paprika, my goal was to create a creamy melting cheese laced with earthy, smokey flavors that would be perfect on a cheese board, tacos or in fondue.
In this video post, I show you how to cold pack jars for pickling and how to make a basic brine. I'll walk you through the process of canning these delicious cumin-spiked pickled carrots from start to finish using a water bath canner.
Cumin and beets go so well together - the exotic savory flavor pairs nicely with the rich sweetness of the beets. Vinegar adds a little bite and salt brings the whole thing up to a humming pitch. A great addition to any mezze plate or felafel meal.
