Pickles and Relish - A Round-Up

Fresh dill is now available in our local markets. It's appearance and heady aroma serve as a reminder that it's time to pickle and brine at least some of summer's bounty. Here are photos and recipes for some of the pickles and relishes that keep me busy at this time of year.

I love dill and actually grew some this year..I have to say, you had me at the pickled asparagus - yum....but in all honesty everything looks good. I might also have to try the dill pickles - my favorites:-)

Beata said...

I love your blog and your recipes :)

If you pickle it, I will eat it! Now I'm off to check on your pickled plums since that's a new one for me.

Best,
Bonnie

Great round up - pretty well has something for everyone.

Valérie said...

Cool! I've been making cucumber pickles all month long, but some beets would really hit the spot!

Pickled plums, that really sounds different:@)

It's kinda funny ... we spend a fortune planting grass, watering it, fertilizing it, deweeding it ... for a plant that we can't eat. But there's a reason why it's called "dill weed." It seriously grows like a weed. Plant a little, and you'll be making pickles for the rest of you life. Cheers!

What a perfect way to save summer's bounty for future use!

You are good: i remember when I used to make about 150 jars and was so proud. I have slowed down since then and just make a few.

I don't even particularly like asaparagus, but it looks so pretty in those little jars that I'm tempted to try it again.

Also, pickled plums? Never heard of that one!

That Girl said...

I pickled tomatoes yesterday and I'm realizing I didn't put any dill in it!

Beautiful! Someday, I will really master the art of pickling. I have attempted refrigerator pickles once, but the true talent continues to elude me.

So many bloggers are pickling right now, and I haven't jumped on the band wagon yet...I need to get on that. I'm loving the pickled asparagus and red pepper relish. Looks delicious! Hope you had a great weekend.

I really do need to start canning, but not this year. Next year after the move though!
