I like Pickles. So I wanted to make some. I went to the farmers market today in Copper Young Area. They had fruit, vegetables and yummy things to eat. Even a guy who owns a worm farm! They had some delicious looking beets, so I got some to make pickle beets. Not your ordinary pickle.
I needed some help for this. First we roasted the beets, then we made a pickle juice. Ours had water, apple cider vinegar, cloves, bay leaf, pink peppercorns, cinnamon, cardamon and sugar. We sliced the beets, added them to a sterilized jar and poured the pickling juice in. I think they will be fabulous!
A couple of weeks ago we made dill pickles. I sliced the cucumbers with a crinkle cutter and we used a package of pickle mix. They are not as good as last years but they look pretty.
I also used some of the pickle juice from the beets and added fresh thinly sliced stalks of garlic and mashed it up. Mom said it would be a good salad dressing.
Get creative in the kitchen! Don't forget to visit the worm guy at the farmers market too.
Love the cabbage, Leaf
