Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. Now, did he pick a peck and then pickle them? A blend of sweet and hot peppers, cauliflower, carrots and onions make these pickled peppers a bit different.
This french pickled garlic was my first foray into the wild world of pickling, and now I'm hooked! The garlic's bite is soothed by the floral, herbaceous pickling solution, meaning you could eat the cloves whole! These are addicting!
If you want to feel like creating a new texture with the same flavours, mix the pickled peppers' ingredients, thicken them with pectin and create an original, aromatic spread for sandwiches, toasts and grilled meats.
In case you aren’t familiar with chimichurri, it’s an Argentinean condiment based on olive oil, herbs, and garlic. Think “pesto” and you have an idea of what it’s like. And, it's a great way to use those herbs that may be taking over your garden.
Ah, the flavor-packed, tangy, herby deliciousness of chimichurri. It’s enough to make one feel a little tingle at the sight of a huge fresh bunch of cilantro and garlic. I used some of my own spicy pickled vegetables and smoked garlic.
