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?
Tender baby eggplant and red spring onions pickled in a balsamic vinegar/red wine brine that is versatile enough to go from pasta to grilled cheese, to salad dressing in the blink of an eye!
Pickled Chayote Slaw: A citrus-y cross between vinegar-dressed cole slaw & sauerkraut, but with chayote squash. Tart, a bit sweet, but still retaining a slightly crispy bite - very much like cabbage-style slaw or kraut. Great with sandwiches or BBQ.
Bengal-Style Chutney Not terribly traditional, but packed with traditional flavors. Sweet, savory, and spicy - a delicious condiment with just about anything.
Apple Ginger Jam - Light, sweet, and a little bit of a bite. Perfect on toast, with cheese, or as a filling for your favorite pastry. Canned for November 2010 Can Jam.
