As the harvest from our gardens, CSA's and Farmer's Markets start to roll in, it's easy to find yourself with an abundance of bounty. If you can't quite finish them all off in other meals, try one of these 10 quick pickle recipes — and not all of them are vegetables!
If we had to name one type of food that always sounds delicious it would be pickles! Although we're not always in the mood for a cucumber per say, we're always feeling like a little vinegar and garlic pick me up. Our true love is pickled carrots and runner up is the first one below — pickled eggs!
