Yanno what I run hot and cold on? Pickles. Sometimes I just love them and can’t get enough and then sometimes I couldn’t care less about them. But I always get a little excited in the summer when those little pickling cucumbers start to show up. Coz then I can show off a bit and make my faves. Like these Refrigerator Bread & Butter Pickles.
The other day I made the most marvelous (if I do say so myself, and I do, I do) Bahn Mi Street Tacos. If you haven’t seen that post, take a peek! One of the defining elements in that recipe is these Quick Vietnamese Pickled Carrots, a little sweet with tangy undertones from the vinegar, and they’re a little addictive!
I’m so psyched about this Quick Asian Pickled Cabbage. It’s easy, it’s humble and it inspired a whole meal. This is a recipe that mimics some pickled cabbage I had once at a restaurant so maybe Asian “leaning” would be more descriptive. Honestly, though, I don’t think anyone will search for that!
Yanno what I love about cooking? Well, there’s always the fact that I get to eat what I’m cooking – but cooking also means I get to taste & tweak and adjust and make things just how I want them. Case in point: Sweet Tart Bread & Butter Pickles.
Have you had those marvelous pickled veggies in restaurants that are sometimes a garnish on Mexican or food from other Latin American countries? And of course, as I’m saying this, I’m assuming that you’re probably not in Latin America and don’t already make Escabeche, Mexican Pickled Vegetables! Although I do get visitors from all over the place and so far today, according to the WordPress wizards, I’ve had seven visitors from Mexico! Hola!
