International Pickle Day
On September 16th, New York City (and the NY Food Museum) will be celebrating the 7th International Pickle Day, and I am inviting you, my fellow foodie bloggers, to join this party with recipes and photos of your favorite homemade pickles.
This may seem a very early invitation for such a party, but since real homemade pickles need some time to mellow and develop their flavors, and a spring and summer of bounty and harvest lay ahead of us, there will be plenty of time for us to try new recipes, renew old standards, and preserve the abundance of summer fruits and vegetables for the dark and cold fall and winter nights.
I hope you join me in this pickling endeavour and post about your pickling experience!
How to join:
Write a post (blog entry) about pickles, preferably a recipe with a picture, but if you don’t have the time or chance for preserving, a post about a pickle you have bought or even a childhood memory of grannys special pickles will do. (If you have lyrics featuring pickles or great books on pickles we should know about please share, too!)
Post this entry before September 10 and e-mail me at foodfreak dot mail at googlemail dot com, providing your name, the permalink to your blog entry and please add ‚Pickles‘ to the subject line.
I will try to post a complete roundup in time for the 7th Pickle Day celebrations.
Thank you, and happy pickling!
