Origin
We all remember pickling as a labor-intensive chore we had to do to preserve the over abundance of cucumbers that gardens always seem to produce. The authors of Pickles have changed all that. They have developed recipes to safely preserve almost anything from your garden. Designed to be eaten within a few weeks, they can be made from an amazing variety of ingredients: from classic cucumbers or squash to the unusual Balsamic Pickled Peaches or Mango Pickle with Scorched Mustard Seeds, these are anything but ordinary. Recipes for Kim Chee or Japanese Soy-Pressed Pickled Carrots and Radishes give the book an international flavor. Included is a history of pickles as well as tips and tricks to make your own fool-proof pickles right at home.
