Go Ahead Honey - Winter Pickles

Posted Jan 31 2013 10:59am

Well, it was a small bunch of picklers who turned up for my virtual carnival in a jar this month! Maybe it's the inertia of January, as everyone struggles to pick up the pace again after the haven of a Christmas rest? Maybe I could have visited and blogged more recently? Time does seem to slip away of late, with so many pots to keep attending to...

Please go and check out Alta at Tasty Eats at Home , for her February theme if you missed contributing to this one. Thank you to everyone who did contribute!

Nooshin of For The Love of Food made one of my favourite pickles - Pickled Garlic and gave it a lovely Persian twist with cardamom, cumin and coriander seeds. This garlic pickle is also probiotic - not vinegary, so it provides a little treat for your gut flora too!

Marisa of Food In Jars made a delicious Asian spiced pear pickle with some gorgeous Nashi Pears , fragrant lemon zest and fiery ginger root. She peps up a salad with it, but I could imagine a slice of this gracing many a spicy plate.

Michelle of Michelle Doll / Bakeshop 360 made another pear pickle - this time a Pear and Rosemary Agrodolce from some Nonna's Italian kitchen and perfect for bringing that sweet / savoury note to a pear and goat cheese salad.

Anyone who knows me will have heard me eulogizing the merits of pickled turnips this month in my Awesome Turnip Pickle . But I also have a large place in my heart (and at the side of my plate) for Kimchi , Ginger Carrots , Cardamom Beets and Pickled Radishes - when they come back into season in the spring.

So what are you waiting for? - get pickling!
