It’s no wonder so many good restaurants are making and serving pickles, preserves and chutneys these days – they brighten up the flavor of just about any dish and often add a nice pop of color and texture on the plate. I have frequently joked that when I was growing up, pickles were a food group for me so when I recently saw a recipe from the U.S. Apple Association for pickled apples, I knew I had to start playing around. I’ve made a number of adaptations to suit my tastes; you could easily add more or different seasonings if you want a zippier pickle. These pickled apple slices are lovely as a condiment for grilled cheese sandwiches, tossed in a salad, or delicious as a snack with cheese. I expect I will find all sorts of other ways to enjoy them….as soon as I make another batch.
