I made out like a bandit at the farmer's market today: dates, almonds,
peppers, golden beets and greens, garlic, lemon cucumbers, early girl
and heirloom tomatoes, eggplant, basil, radishes, and one of the first
apples of the season, all grown nearby.
So obviously, I decided to try some more pickles.
white balsamic vinegar
Left to right:
1/2 lemon cucumber
1 vanilla bean
2 lemon cucumbers
a bunch of basil leaves
1 jalapeno pepper
2 cloves garlic
(note: the jalapenos and garlic I got at the farmers market are infinitely
more potent than conventional ones from a grocery store.)
The sealing went well, only one broke, and after the second attempt, all
of them sealed.
It's funny to be stocking my pantry in August, but I guess there's no better time?
