What do you pickle in the middle of winter? I want something fresh and bright, but not if the produce is shipped from 5000 miles away. Inspiration came in a bottle of home-brewed stout combined with onions, vinegar and spices. Viola. Winter pickles.
Preserving root vegetables is a great way to enrich them with a variety of delicious and seasonal flavors. The earthiness of curry goes well with any pickled root vegetable and it somehow seemed fitting for autumn
Pickled Red Onions are super easy to make, but they can wake up a plate of food like nothing else. Put them on tacos, sandwiches, salads, hot dogs and hamburgers. These are spiced with whole pickling spices and jalapeno peppers.
