P is for Pickle...

OH! Pickle, pickle, pickle, starts with P.

Last night I went to BJs - usually mrpet goes for the family. This meant, among other things, that I got to troll PERSONALLY for cheap pickle ingredients, and I hit the jackpot.

I bought six pounds of peeled garlic. I know! I know. Maybe it was a little over the top. But it was only $1.49 for two pounds, and normally it would be like $6 for one, and mrpet has been saying he wanted pickled garlic, and I had just had garlic soup the day before and it was OMG so yummy...
I found a recipe for French pickled garlic in my Joy of Pickling, but I decided not to make a commitment yet (though white wine sounds a delicious addition, doesn't it?). I did microwave the garlic to make it a bit milder and more tender, and will be adding live brine when it cools down (it already has plenty of salt).

I also got three bags of shredded coleslaw of cabbage and carrot variety. I am going to use this to make lightly fermented Asian-style coleslaw, like you sometimes get in Tibetan restaurants. Nom nom nom.

A few days ago I also took a new batch of pickles out of the press - mixed end-of-summer dill pickles with boy choy, broccoli, peppers, carrots, and green beans. Nom nom.
