Pickles always seem so mysterious to me.
I know how to make quick bread and butter pickles, but there is a whole other category of pickling that mystifies me.
Kim chee, which I love for its garlicky-heat and tangy taste,for instance, is technically a pickle, although it's not like any pickle I grew up eating. The pickled baby onions I ate in India were delicious and a treat I never imagined I'd be noshing on.
I think it's time to take on the pickle. Anyone have some great pickle recipes to share?
