OT Anybody do any pickling?

I like to serve a generous slice of half sour dill on my pulled pork sandwiches. But the local brand is awful so I started making my own. It's really no trick.

    I like to pickle cippolini onions.  Core and remove skin, roast in BGE or oven 350F with some Italian dressing sprinkled on them. When starting to get soft remove, cool and place in glass jar with balsamic vinegar to cover.  Sometimes I roast some baby mushrooms and add to the jar also.

    A very long time.  They do get a little soft after a couple of years.   Still have a couple from that big batch, and they are good.  They get really strong after awhile.  I won't do that big a one next time, probably a dozen at a time is good.  Using more or less the same formula you can do onions and red cabbage, which is really good.  Oh, and pickled baby carrots and cauliflower.

  • We did some hamburger dills back in July. Haven't cracked them open yet. We have some to family and they said they were tasty, but lacking crisp. Next time we will add pickle crisp before canning.

    Did you cut the blossom tip off? That's supposed help keep them crisp. These cut in half are eating fine 20 hrs later
  • I love doing pickled eggs. I have to make them huge batches because when my friends find out I made some, they all ask for a jar. image

    Thanks!  You got me, what is a jolly in this context? Some type of pepper?

  • jalapeño.  It just requires too much goggling for me to spell it correctly.

    My earlier dill pickle recipie will work with eggs.  Dump the dill and maybe add garlic.  Eggs last a long time too.

  • Oh yea! add crushed red pepper to the recipe.
