Our summer garden harvest is jarring – and we’re jarring the harvest! Brooke’s cucumber bounty becomes the base of an awesomely acidic treat: sweet pickles. Her low-sugar version features apple cider vinegar, dill, Vidalia onions and layered spices that offset the sweet and sour flavor. Try saving the brine for veggies that are past their prime! (02:04) We break down the origin of piccalilli and relish a Southern recipe spotlighting green tomatoes. Chris explains pickling with nonreactive glass jars, and she reveals the inspiration for Just Simply… Cuisine’s signature building blocks – the foundation of our favorite condiments, marinades, sauces and more. (07:23) Speaking of which, preserved lemons are this episode’s featured building block. Use them to bring zing to your chicken marinade or a Bloody Mary cocktail. Just remember – a little goes a long way – all the way ‘til next citrus season! (10:36) Finally, Chris stumbles upon Anna Tasca Lanza’s simple zucchine sott'olio recipe. The Sicilian summer squash is preserved in extra-virgin olive oil, oregano and garlic. Delizioso! (19:13)
