• Pickled Golden Raisins! Posted on April 30, 2013


    Pickled Golden Raisins! Happy National Raisin Day! Pickled Golden Raisins are a spectacular addition to roasted and stewed meats, especially lamb. Stud your basmati with them and a few buttery toasted almonds; your rice just got an upgrade. Add these to some spinach and beets, a cheese plate for your next social hour or in between the ham and cheese you grill up for your honey.

    Ingredients:

    1 Cup Golden Raisins
    1 Cup Water
    3 TB White Wine Vinegar
    1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
    2 TS Mustard Seeds
    1 TS Lemon Thyme Leaves
    1 Dried Chili
    1 inch Rosemary Sprig
    1 TS Salt

    Toast the mustard seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant and begin to pop. Add the remaining ingredients into the pan and bring to a boil, continue to cook until the liquid is reduced by half (about 8 minutes). Let the mixture cool, transfer to the desired container and store the raisins in liquid in the refrigerator.
