      please, anything can and was pickled. let's face it in rainy northern europe drying happened but pickling was more reliable and more likely to provide you with food through the winter. also, i cannot take credit for the recipe. you need to find a copy of linda ziedrich's book The Joy of Pickling. while there are some recipes that may require a bit of specialized equipment it is overall a very user friendly book. one tip i can give you is, even if you have a dishwasher, hand wash your jars and inspect closely for chips and cracks. rinse and put in the oven. set to 220F and once the oven comes to temp set your timer for 15 min. jars with be sterile and dry.
      happy pickling and see you on the range

        another blast from the shotgun school of a & s project. in the past month i and a couple friends armed with patience and sharp objects pickled 11 quarts of carrots & parsnips, 10 quarts of beets, 7 quarts of grapes and 3 quarts of mushrooms for northshield crown tourney held last weekend in jararvellir. i thing the grapes are good alone but on vanilla ice cream they are amazing. the mushrooms went well on top of couscous. i don't think i will be doing that much pickling all at once anytime soon but it was interesting. i also finished a tunic with embroidery and a little pair of shoes for a friend's infant son. pictures up later today.
