Put It In a Jar: Pickled Blueberries

“So. Pickled blueberries, huh?” …was along the lines of what I was thinking when I decided on this as my next victim. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit hesitant at first. Once I began looking up ways to use pickled blueberries though (more on that later), I was sold.

I used this recipe from Saveur, and lemme-tell-you, it is the perfect way to stretch out those pickling muscles. Minimal ingredients, no stovetop prep, plus it’s ready to be devoured in 24 hours. All y’all lazies out there who think pickling takes days and weeks to take effect will love this. Do yourselves a favor though and make this recipe now while blueberries are in season!

You’re Putting Your Pickle Where???

Let the record show that in February 2012, the foodie revolution officially went too far.

Now, I can do a pickle-tini. I can do a grilled pickle.

Pickled watermelon? Pickled ramps? Pickles on the Christmas tree? Yes, yes, and hell yes. But pickles in my coffee? For seriousness? I’ve checked and checked, but it seems this is not some sort of pop-up April Fools’ Day joke. Metrocurean reports from DC:

Peregrine Espresso is pushing the sour envelope with a specialty drink now on offer, dubbed Love Potion Number Brine (above). Joining forces with new DC-based pickle company Gordy’s Pickle Jar, Peregrine created a drink that mixes Gordy’s sweet brine with espresso, milk and a little simple syrup on ice.

If they start serving this with a side of nutella pickle relish, I am retiring.
