Pickled Pears

August 2, 2010

This holiday Monday was a busy one.  We put up 4 different food items using 3 different preserving manuals and one Turnbull original.

Pickling fruit is a really interesting experiment.  Something I think a lot of Europeans do and what a great idea.  Matt and I are always on the look for something a little bit different to eat fresh and capture in a jar for later. We were thrilled when we found these sweet little Sugar Pears at our local Veggie Store.

 Using The Fruits of the Earth recipe book we discovered this little gem and gave it a whirl.  The hot liquid is a great combination of sweet and savory and the rich amber colour with the star anise and dried chili peppers gives the bottled product a wonderful look.

What do you think? 

Put Up Total:
