Let’s Talk Pickling
Today I want to share an AWESOME idea with everyone - pickling! We here at Culinary Crafts love pickled fruits and vegetables and they really have a way of adding a great zing of flavor to any dish you choose - in fact, one of Mary Crafts-Homer's favorite bites is Culinary Crafts's Pulled Pork Sliders with Pickled Red Onions. Yum! We also love creating pickled veggie trays for fall and winter events and they are definitely a hit. Plus, pickling is a great way to preserve any fruits or vegetables that you have grown or purchased and aren't going to be able to eat before they spoil. Use the pickled offerings on tacos, sandwiches, as a side dish, garnish, or anything else you want - plus, you can pickle so many things like onions, cucumbers (i.e. pickles), green beans, carrots, beets, squash, peppers, watermelon rind (yes, the rind), pears, tomatoes, cauliflower and more! If you are interested in trying this out, I love this simple "how to" from Martha Stewart here. This utilizes a blend of spices that is great with many veggies, so you can try a bunch! Not to mention, homemade pickled fruits and veggies can be an AWESOME holiday gift for anyone! Happy pickling everyone!
