This is the first in a series of larder posts I will be making over the next couple weeks. This time of year I feel that urge to stock up, preserve the flavors of the growing season for the winter to come. There are some great assets you can add to your larder and ice box that will turn cold dark winter nights into hearty renditions of the summer months. Today I bolstered my pickle stock with a much used recipe here, this afternoon I added cardamom and sweet pickled onions, as well as curry and ginger pickled zucchini chips. Pickles are a must for a meat or cheese board and they will take your grilled cheese sandos to interstellar dimensions! Other jars include spicy red scallion bulb, coriander squash chips, spicy sage pickled fennel bulb and rhubarb, and pickled forest nameko mushroom.
