Nothing tops eating fresh summer produce the second it hits the farmers market, but preserving it is a close second. With preserving, you get to enjoy your bounty for months and months, even after the warmth of summertime has passed.
My preferred preserving method is pickling — you just can't beat that flavorful, vinegary tang. From quick-pickled mushrooms to classic dill pickles, here are 10 pickled recipes to try this summer.
Of all the different methods of preserving food, pickling is a fairly easy one to do at home. Even though there are a lot of different foods that can be used, the one we all think about first is cucumbers.
