What We Love: Spring Pickles

by Amy Feiereisel
What We Love: Spring Pickles

My initial reaction to spring produce is pretty simple – eat everything fresh in sight, often with just a quick drizzle of olive oil or a sprinkle of really nice salt. But after my belly is all filled up with baby greens, my mind turns to saving and preserving some of those lovely, delicate spring

5 Little Luxuries for Your Spring Kitchen

Hello, ladies and gents. I am feeling like the thick of spring is just waiting for all of us around the next bend. In another few weekends, we’ll hear way more birds chirping, we’ll see the beginning of little blossoms popping up, and we’ll feel the urgency to dig our hands in the dirt or

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Tea-Smoked Duck Breast and Pickled Rhubarb

Food gifts run the spectrum from sweet and sugary to savory and nutritious. Sean’s Tea-Smoked Duck Breast is savory and so thoughtful, nourishing in a way that candied gifts just can’t match. Don’t forget the Pickled Rhubarb — it’s just about rhubarb season in some parts and a pickle turns the sweetness into something very

10 Starter Cookbooks for a Well-Loved Kitchen

One whiff of cinnamon and I am transported back to my maternal grandmother’s pantry. Amidst the jarred peaches, homemade chili sauce, hanging pots, and jars of mayonnaise (she never refrigerated the stuff, but I somehow survived), there was one shelf stacked high with her favorite cookbooks. She would often send me in search of a particular recipe in

Five Reasons to Love Share Boards (and What’s a Share Board?)

Share Boards: Why I Love Them and YOU Should Too

As we head into the last celebration of 2014, I wanted to gush for a moment on what you probably call cheese plates or meat plates or some-plate-filled-with-cheese-and-meat-and-crackers-and-such. I now affectionately call them “Share Boards” — because they always end up being big boards or entire tables filled with anything delicious upon which we all

Pickled Fennel

Pickled Fennel

With six bulbs of fennel hiding out in my fridge and a small village set to descend for Thanksgiving, I made this condiment for my big share boards that hang out all day. A share board is essentially a platter filled with all sorts of delicious bites that guests can share as an appetizer or

All-Purpose Quick Pickle Brine

Let’s be quick about this because you have way better things to do than sit inside pickling over a steaming stove all summer. On Saturday, my darling Italian neighbor gave me peppers, cucumbers and parsley from her garden. My garden is suffering, big time, so I got a little glassy-eyed when she handed me her

6 Questions for Karen Solomon (author, Asian Pickles) and Wasabi Pickled Carrots

I met Karen Solomon on the streets of San Francisco in April 2013. I was waiting for a taxi to the airport when she walked right out of her apartment building. I promise I had no idea it was her apartment building but when I asked if she was the cookbook author, well, I’m certain

Roasted Veggie Tacos and Homemade Tortilla Recipe

If ever there were a time to dine outdoors, with one’s hands, on produce heavy dishes, THIS IS IT. Tacos usually mean meat, but in this case, Casey has conjured up a veggie recipe that is so flavorful, you’ll be too busy tasting all the goodness to miss the… – Amy That time of year

Rosemary Infused Honey

I love France for many reasons, and one of them is the flavored olive oils, vinegars, and honeys. They seem to make each and every dish just a little more special, a little more thought about. A splash of tarragon vinegar, a drizzle of basil oil, or the very best, a little pool of flavored

Spicy Mayonnaise

Spicy Mayo

My fridge is filled with condiments and I find they make the very best #foodgiftlove to the man, husband, father, backyard barbecue person in your life. I want to drizzle Matthew’s Spicy Mayonnaise onto just grilled vegetables or a potluck potato salad. If you like grilled potatoes, it would no doubt be a stellar dipping

Pickles are the universal food gift, seriously. The homemade kind take only minutes to make and add such punch to every sort of meal, from breakfast to break-time snacks. Angela shows us the easiest sort: pickled radishes with whole black peppercorns. In ten minutes or less, you’ll have the kind of #foodgiftlove that makes dinner shine

Spring Pickled Ramps

Everyone is talking about ramps and, gosh, we love them too. If you don’t know what they are, why people love them or what anyone would ever do with them, Matthew has you covered. Just pickle them, but not before you read his words of wisdom, okay? Spring is here and you need to know
