The Man in Brown showed up at my door today with a box. The box contained these two wonderful jars of yummy goodness! A gift of Homemade Jam from Suzi. What a sweetheart she is. This just made my day, maybe even my whole week! Thanks so much, Suzi! :0)
Here is another Jar of Goodness!
I found the idea for these veggies from a BHG cookbook of mine.
Overnight Pickled Veggies:
- 2 cups fresh trimmed green beans
- 2 cups fresh or packaged baby carrots
- 1 cup rice vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp chopped jalapeno pepper
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
In the same saucepan combine the vinegar, water, jalapeno, garlic and salt. Heat just to boiling. Remove from heat and stir in the dill and cilantro.
Place the veggies into a jar or bowl and pour vinegar over veggies. Let stand for 30 minutes. If you don't have a jar available you can transfer the veggies and vinegar to a Ziploc bag to marinate.
Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours or up to 3 days, stirring occasionally.
