Finally, a day off! I started the day with a little shopping, and then I attempted my first batch of pickles. Ever. Canning and pickling seems really scary, but once you get going, it’s actually pretty easy. I hope to have a pantry full of canned preserves, jams, jellies, and pickles by the end of the summer.
My Rat Tail Radishes were ripe and ready, so I harvested yesterday, and pickled today. I hope they taste as good as they look. The recipe I used recommends using them in place of capers, or on a skewer in a Bloody Mary. The Bloody Mary option sounds best to me.
