Pickle Time!

It’s all Carol’s fault, Beautiful People! Lovely and versatile Carol of https://carolcooks2.com reminded me of the National Pickle Day. Enjoy!

koolkosherkitchen

Foodimentary.com tells us that today is a National Pickle Appreciation Day. I think the best way to show pickles that you appreciate them is to make them.  I am repeating three old “pickling” posts. All three recipes, as well as about 100 more different ones, are in my book Kool Kosher Kitchen, only one click away at amazon.com/author/koolkosherkitchen.

When you hear “pickles,” what usually comes to mind? I’d bet cucumbers and maybe tomatoes. You won’t see cucumbers here, although they are mentioned, but we’ll start with tomatoes and proceed to more exotic vegetables. Bear in mind that these are older posts (for instance, I first posted Pickled Tomatoes in May, before Shavuos).

A little note: I have been adding carrot sticks to kale stems and pickling them together, with spectacular results. Try it and enjoy, Beautiful People!

  5. Thank you for remembering on this, Dolly! Seems i should try by myself too. But i am sure it will not look like as famous as on your photos. Done by me more like a smoothie. 😉 Michael

    1. Pickle smoothie – very funny! Naturally pickled vegetables, without vinegar, are very healthy, Michael.

      2. Come on, Michael, just drop them into a jar and pour saline solution over them. Don’t touch them any more!

    1. You really should look into it, darling, but the healthy ones are naturally fermented, the way I do it, i.e. without vinegar.
