An easy recipe for a crispy, spicy batch of garlic-and-dill pickled asparagus spears. If the first thing that popped into your head was “Bloody Mary!”, then you clearly you, dear reader, are awesome. *Now openly accepting brunch invitations
My first taste was with cocktails and just straight out of the jar. So, incredibly delicious. When I was in a more civilized mood I made a pretty salad, dotted with goat cheese and croutons before drizzling with some of the pickling juice. Umm wow!
Tangy, spicy and sweet a chutney can be made in the pressure cooker in just minutes. I've pressure cooked marmalade and hot sauce - so when mangoes magically appeared at the local store I jumped at the chance to make my own chutney.
This tangy, clove- and cinnamon-infused relish is a tangle of colorful strips of bell and jalapeno peppers, sweet onions and sun-dried tomato. Great on on pork and lamb, amazing with savory stews like picadillos and tagines.
