Delicious Seasonal Pickles with Maya’s Farm Produce
Pickling is a time tested way to keep, and enjoy produce for months after harvest. Nutritious and a wide variety of recipes and uses pickles add a kick to any snack, meal or side!
Here’s one right from Maya’s Farm hand Anna –
Anna’s Pickled Peppers
“For the pickled peppers…I stir together a one to one ratio of water to vinegar (I usually use white distilled so its clear, but apple cider is good too).
Throw in a tablespoon of salt, some garlic or onion slices and any herbs or spices if I’ve got them, and throw in whatever peppers I’ve got on hand – either sliced or whole (if you leave them whole, cut a few slits to let the brine penetrate).
Hot peppers are good thrown in whole to flavor. I stick it in the back of the fridge and leave it days, weeks, months.
I started these pickle jars at the beginning of the summer and just throw in whatever leftover peppers I have around (other veggies work too) and top up on brine if needed. Good on burgers, sandwiches, tacos, chile – or out of the jar!
… I’ve pickled or fermented pretty much everything we grow at some point…” – Anna
