  • Festive pickles

    Here is the plan. I give you a list of what I have left either stored or growing on the plot which could be used and you can give me ideas for preserved stuff to add to small jars to put in my hampers!
    • Florence Fennel
    • Mooli
    • Curly and Cabanero kale
    • Carrots
    • Beetroot
    • Parsnips
    • Onions red
    • Onions white
    • Yacon
    • Yellow toms
    • Jalapeno and other chilli peppers
    • Leeks
    • Eggs
    • Beans which need shelling
    I have other stuff as well but the above are all usable now. Thought about kale crisps?The rest is an open book until i decide.

    You could layer the veg in the jars in different colours?

            Like that idea. I can feel an experiment coming on!

            Apparently I can even use my celery leaves that i have grown for cutting!

            They look like eggs in the bottom of the pickle jar?

              They do tend to make your eyes water when pickled in malt vinegar!

                  I DON'T like them either. Years ago, I was dared to eat one in a pub.............and I failed miserably. It was like eating a vinegar soaked tennis ball - with an eye

                    ............don't understand the 'eye' bit?

                    I'm just giving the vinegar a chance to soak right through the eggs on the ones I've done.(been in vinegar about a month)

                          I would tend to go for more traditional recipes for presents.
                          What about root veg crisps, kale crisps, red onion marmalade, tomato and chilli jam, one or two chutneys?

                            Possibly dry the chillies and make chilli powder..Pretty straightforward..
                            Or chilli flakes..
                            I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives....

                              My favourite festive pickle is deciding which half of the family to spend Xmas with.
