seasonal RECIPES for those who love to EAT
Pickling seems to be all the rage lately. This isn’t surprising, since pickling is actually a pretty easy process (particularly if you’re just making refrigerator
goodies). If you’re a salt lover, pickled things are probably high on your list and they make a great appetizer or snack with a cold beer. Feel free to
mix this up with veggies of your choice, and don’t be surprised if your purple
carrots (or radishes) turn everything a light pink color.
