Confession: I’ve never attempted home pickling! I’ve always wanted to give it a try (pickled vegetables can have such lovely flavor, and are a great way to continue to enjoy the farm market’s bounty after the season has ended), but assumed it would be a daunting task. I even considered buying an automatic pickling/canning machine I came across in a kitchen catalog last year to streamline the process (we all know my weakness for new cooking tools!). Needless to say, my interest was piqued when I received an email this week inviting me to share this Fix.com graphic on how to pickle with my readers. (One of the best parts of being a food writer; interesting things are always arriving in my Inbox!) I love how this graphic breaks down the processes of pickling and canning in a way that’s both manageable and customizable. I hope you find the tutorial informative, too. I’m looking forward to giving it a try, and I’d love to hear your experiences with home pickling as well in the comments!
