Have you seen the price of peppers lately? I don't know about your area, but they're pretty pricy down here.
So, I'm sitting, looking at them, and also looking at these hothouse cukes I'd gotten. AKA English Cucumbers. I was thinking of Agurk Salat, but didn't have any dill, then I put two and two together, well, cukes and peppers together and thought "quick pickle".
So I cut part of each pepper up, only used about a quarter of each one,
Heated up 1/2 cup of Rice Vinegar, added 2 tablespoons of sugar to it, tasted it, then added 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, about 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, tasted it again, and added about a teaspoon of soy sauce. I liked that mixture and poured it over the finely cut strips of pepper and cucumber.
They sat in the fridge for a few hours, I wanted them to get well acquainted.
Blind dates aren't always fun.
And I served them for Tapas, alongside a plate of sliced peppers.
Well, not all the pickled peppers were eaten so I had some on a sandwich the next day. And since I'm a Dane, I had to see how they tasted on Leverpostej. (Liver Paste).
And guess what, they were pretty darn good. And I think they looked pretty too.
And the beets were a gift from a friend. I can't tell you how much I appreciate them. Especially when I can eat them like this.
