This recipe for Soy Pickled Jalapenos came by way of my sister. It was shown to her by her soon-to-be Mother-in-Law who came to the States from China and ran a successful restaurant with her husband for years before retiring.
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.
