Pickling is another form of preserving fruits and vegetables, but usually vegetables. The process extends the shelf life of food by fermentation in brine or immersing the vegetables in a vinegar solution. Pickled herbs can be roasted and ground up for an easy ground spice dip. Leftover lemons can be brined in a sugar and vinegar solution and used as a sweet and sour condiment.
The rule of thumb when it comes to pickling is a 60% vinegar, 40% water solution. Spices can be added to develop a more profound flavor. A wide variety of spices can be added from cumin to juniper berries. For the best result, let your new pickles sit for 3 to 5 days before eating. The waiting period allows the flavor and fermentation to enhance the flavor of the vegetables you are pickling.
