Kitchen Challenge Swap Series
For this swap series each swap will address a different food, cooking/baking technique, or style of food/cooking. This series is for kitchen nerds who enjoy to experiment in the kitchen, try new things, and don’t mind if a recipe fails a time or two. So get out your pots, pans, trusty spoon, a kitchen scale (if you have it), and an open mind. Lets have some fun!
This series is also a great way to start a cooking and/or baking journal. I use my baking journal as a way to track recipes I’ve tried, how the recipe turned out, what I’d try next time, and any substitutes or conversions I made. It’s a great tool for food nerds who love to spend time in the kitchen.
This swap’s challenge is: Pickles/Pickling!
Pickling is a method of food preservation used by culture around the world to preserve everything from vegetables and fruits to meats and fish! Pickling can be achieved by using a salt & water brine, vinegar (sometimes referred to as “quick pickling”), and fermenting (sauerkraut, kimchi, etc.). Pickled foods are diverse in flavor and use and are a relatively easy way to dip your toes into the wide world of food preservation.
For this swap I challenge you to make a type of pickle you’ve never made before! Or if you are a newbie to pickling, make a pickle you find interesting! If you are new to pickling I recommend finding a “quick pickle” that uses a vinegar brine for consistent results – but do whatever catches your eye!
For this swap I am allowing a longer swap window that usual because pickled foods can take awhile to make, especially if you are using fermentation methods. I want to make sure you have plenty of time to make your pickled products.
Here are a couple resources to get you going:
