It’s a miracle

After writing about how, even though I loathe pickles, I was planning to make some pickles with the gazillion cucumbers I’d gotten from my CSA, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I actually like these pickles. Hot damn.

After this revelation, I was feeling inspired to do some more pickling of stuff. Last week’s beet bounty combined with beets I already had on hand got me thinking about how to preserve beets. Kelli put me in touch with her friend Jessica, who passed along a recipe for canning beets. It looked pretty good, and I was all set to give it a go when I found (in Preserving Summer’s Bounty,” from the good folks at Rodale) a recipe for pickled beets in a honey, cinnamon, and allspice syrup. Yum.

    Those pickles really are the best, hard to resist even for pickle haters like yourself and my sister. That beet recipe sounds wonderful! I think I will go to a used bookstore and see if I can get a copy of that book.
