pickled sweet peppers

Well now, I didn’t expect my last post to be such a pity party. I’m sorry about that, but I’m also floored by all your wonderful comments. I guess the stress of my real life was poking it’s way into my blog life, but so it goes.

I know my life will get some relief once next weekend is over with. I’ll be participating in the One of a Kind show which is a large (read: massive) art/craft show where I’ll be sharing a booth at the Vancouver Convention Centre with 2 other lovely ladies. I guess I wasn’t prepared for all the work involved (like buying carpet, painting hard walls, having enough greeting cards and calendars for 4 busy days of dealing with the public, etc., etc.). My nerves are a bit shot, but I’ll get through it.
As you can probably figure out by all the photos, I’m currently obsessed with sweet peppers. More peppers? Yup. More pickling? Uh huh. While my last fermented pickle experiment was only semi-successful, this is a very safe and sound “quickle” and they’re rip-roaringly delicious. Crunchy, flavourful and perfect. You can read more and follow the recipe over at Poppytalk.

    Thanks Maggie, they are pretty yummy!

    Aw shucks, Joanne, thanks so much.

    Eralda, me too! Thanks 🙂

    Leesh, of course! I think it would be great with rice vinegar and lots of hot pepper.

    Thanks Hannah!

    Ive been on a pickle kick, too! My fave so far is asparagus, but Ive also done bell peppers, red onions, radishes and cucumbers. I am soooo addicted to homemade pickles.

    I hope all goes smoothly for your arts and crafts show. Getting ready for such a thing involves a lot of work and when it's over you'll be exhausted. But happy. Plan for a fluff movie, an easy dinner, and maybe a massage.

    I actually pickle sweet bell peppers "with a kick." I market them across the state of Nebraska, my home state. They go great on a sandwich! Or a salad. I got the recipe from a family friend. Their grandmother pickled them for years down in California. http://www.elyfarms.com
