The farmer’s market in Copley Square was too good. Everything needed to be pickled. And the garden had an excess of cucumbers, green tomatoes, and scallions. And they needed to be pickled, too.
I used 3 different methods. There is the natural pickling method, which I’ve discussed. The vinegar pickling method (to make classic dill pickles) from Charcuterie and the vinegar pickling method of Ana Sortun in Spice. I tried all three, using carrots, brussel sprouts, parsnips, cucumbers, cauliflower, hot peppers, green tomatoes, and scallions. Now I just have to wait a week.
I love pickles.
