  • The Benefits Of Pickle Juice! Posted on September 11, 2017

    The Benefits Of Pickle Juice! Pickles are one of the most divisive foods out there, and he and I are on different ends of the pickle-enjoyment spectrum. I’ve always loved pickles, but he can’t stand them. Still, when he offered me the pickle juice shot, I wasn’t all that interested.

    However, it did make me wonder why they were giving pickle juice to runners.

    I realized pickle juice must have some exercise benefits, but what were they exactly?

    This started my deep dive into the internet — luckily, LittleThings has covered the benefits of pickle juice before, so I didn’t have to look far before I found some answers.

    Before long, I decided to try it for myself.

  • Sweet Cherry Pickles! Posted on September 08, 2017

    Sweet Cherry Pickles! I want to share an easy-to-make-recipe, that’s old school pickling preservation with a new twist (or stem as the case may be) using fresh cherries for the pickling fruit.

    The full recipe is coming up, but essentially you jar up some fresh cherries, pour a spicy little concoction of vinegar, sugar and water over the cherries, seal the tops, pop the jars into a water bath to simmer, remove and let rest for several weeks before eating to engage the flavors and complete the pickling process. And as sure as Bob’s your uncle, you’ll have some tasty tongue ticklers for your next soiree, meal or snack.

  • Pickled Figs In Balsamic Vinegar! Posted on September 04, 2017

    Pickled Figs In Balsamic Vinegar! Fig-flavored balsamic vinegar is pretty common, so I thought, Why not make my own?” says Ernest Miller. It was a great idea: This recipe creates not only that delicious vinegar, but also all the tender whole figs that are infused with it. To guarantee that the figs remain whole, the chef suggests using firm fruit, since the double cooking process would break down very ripe figs.

  • Garlic Cumin Sauerkraut! Posted on August 28, 2017

There are many different ways to spice up your sauerkraut and this recipe for Garlic Cumin Sauerkraut is one of my favorites. Garlic and cumin are tasty spices on their own, but when combined with the tartness of sauerkraut, the result is rich and nuanced.

  • Deep Fried Pickles! Posted on August 21, 2017

    Deep Fried Pickles! I’m a sucker for fried food, deep fried dill pickles just sound and taste so much better to me. I’ve really slowed down on my food frying since I’m in need of a new deep fryer. So I guess it’s about time for me to do a little shopping on Amazon and find me a new one.

    I don’t have a set recipe on what my main ingredients are cause I’m sure I will change them here and there. This recipe is what I actually had in the fridge to use at the time and they worked out great. I love when you can substitute ingredients in or out, so you don’t have to run to the store or holler at your son to run out for ya. I’m sure my son is about done with all the running to the store for this and that. But if he wants to eat, he will run my errands.

    BTW- these are great on a burger!

  • Get Pickled From Your Garden! Posted on August 18, 2017

    Get Pickled From Your Garden! Seasonal herbs, fruits and vegetables aren't just for the plate or the pot. They are as easily for the pitcher and the glass.

    Be the toast of the town by enhancing your cocktail with something gathered from the garden or farm market.

    We're not just talking about celery in the bloody mary or muddled mint in the mojito. When it comes to garden-to-glass refreshment, the only limit is your imagination, say the professionals.

    A little juicer kept in a handy spot is used to whirl the vegetables and fruits for customer favorites such as mango margaritas, strawberry-basil mules, and one of Ms. Dallow's favorites — which she hasn't given a moniker — cucumber-flavored gin with rosemary and fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice.

    Ms. Dallow said she and other staff will gather for a confab and talk about the tastes they want to create such as pickle-infused vodka.

  • Pickled Garlic Scapes! Posted on August 16, 2017

    Pickled Garlic Scapes! Are you familiar with garlic scapes? They’re the curly, wonky shoots that pop up from garlic plants in late spring and early summer. They range in thickness from hefty-chive to green-onion size and they smell and taste like mild garlic. If you’re a fan of garlic (and I assume you are if you spend much time here on Foodie with Family), then you are quite likely to be a fan of garlic scapes.

    Garlic scapes are versatile; they taste amazing chopped up fresh and added to salads, in pesto, sautéed with bacon, on top of pizzas, and more. PICKLED garlic scapes take that fabulousness to an even higher plane. They add a little tang of vinegar and a hint of spice to the party. I’ve been known to fish a cold, pickled garlic scape out of the jar and munch it plain. Granted, this is a pretty bad idea if you’re going to go out to a party where you’re going to be cheek-to-jowl with a lot of people, but if you’re staying home and your sweetheart eats one, too, you’re golden. This may or may not be one of the reasons I’m a homebody.

  • Easy Refrigerator Pickles! Posted on August 14, 2017

    Easy Refrigerator Pickles! Guys, have you tried making refrigerator pickles before?!?

    I know, I know, I’m a little late to the party on this one. Frankly, I’m late to the entire liking-pickled-foods club in general. They’ve just never really been my thing. And some of those soggy, sour, store-bought pickles I tried as a kid were definitely not my thing.

    But earlier this summer, my mom mentioned that she has been making refrigerator pickles non-stop, and insisted I give them a try. And somewhat to my surprise, I loved them. Like, made one batch, and then another, and then another loved them. Like, started buying English cucumbers in bulk loved them. Like, where-the-heck-have-these-crisp-and-garlicky-and-freaking-irresistible-guys-BEEN-all-my-life loved them.

    So of course, I had to share them with you, in hopes that you might love them too. ♥

  • Add A Pickle To Your Next Beer! Posted on August 11, 2017

    Add A Pickle To Your Next Beer! Two fermented foods that compliment each other! On a scorching summer’s afternoon, a sip of a sweet cider or pint of beer can be just the ticket. But light, refreshing lagers are welcoming a new addition from America’s Midwest: the humble pickle.

    The peculiar pairing is championed by pickle producer Joe McClure, based in Michigan.

    “It complements the lager because of the slight vinegar and salt notes that get picked up,” he tells Esquire.

    “Pickles are the perfect snack: cucumbers soaked in evil,” he adds.

  • Heat Fermented Sour Pickles! Posted on August 07, 2017

    Heat Fermented Sour Pickles! Want to liven up your summer table? Look no further than sour pickles. Naturally fermented, sour pickles are rich in beneficial bacteria and food enzymes, offering a dairy-free source of probiotics .

    Vinegar pickles lack the beneficial bacteria found in traditional, sour pickles. To ferment real pickles they must go through lactic acid fermentation – a process that encourages the proliferation of beneficial bacteria.

  • Instant Pot Watermelon Rind Pickles! Posted on August 04, 2017

    Instant Pot Watermelon Rind Pickles! If you throw away the rinds after going to town on a watermelon, you’re doing it wrong. After a quick trip in the Instant Pot (and with the help of some sugar and hot sauce) the firm fruit skin will turn into tender watermelon rind pickles. The sweet and spicy snack can be chopped into a salad, served alongside a starchier meal, or simply as is. Finger-licking tasty as watermelon rind pickles are, the pressure-cooker is the real secret weapon behind this dish. Unlike most other watermelon rind pickle recipes, which call for too much precious times spent boiling or soaking, the Instant Pot cooks the rinds in just 10 minutes—proving it is worthy of its name.

    Pile watermelon rinds, sliced lemons, salt, and sugar into a pressure cooker. Top with a hefty pour of your favorite hot sauce and set the Instant Pot to cook on high. When the pickles are finished, strain out the liquid because—bonus recipe—you can shake the brine with your favorite liquor for a summery cocktail like no other..
