I've written a lot this week. So, today's a bit less wordy and brought to you by . . . Stephen. He's made his annual batch of pickles! I was just there to document the process. These guys will sit -- covered -- on our counter for about two weeks until we can enjoy them.
As with the last time Stephen made pickles, he followed the recipe -- step by step -- that appears in one of our favorite books: Put 'Em Up!: A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook. It describes methods from freezing to drying, canning to, well, pickling. I'm scrambling to re-read more as our CSA kicks into high gear before fall.
And here's more about the nutritional benefits of cucumbers for runners, along with some of our favorite recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
PS: Tomorrow I'll be bringing back my favorite series: Weekend Things!
What's your favorite way to preserve food?
