Weekend Cooking is a blog meme hosted by The Intrepid Reader. It’s been far too long since I’ve done one of these posts, so I thought I’d start myself back into the routine with an easy post. This week I’m introducing you all to my latest fermentation projects. I have several that I’m excited about, but let’s start with my the spicy pineapple batch I made.
We threw together three fourths of a pineapple, one habanero pepper and several jalapenos, a couple squeezes of lime, some sugar, salt and of course some white vinegar. It was sweet and spicy in all the right ways and I am 100% going to make it again. So far I’ve just used it as a sort of relish on tacos but I’m sure I could also put it on some pulled pork.
Next up we have some pickled carrots and peppers, ooh also some onion slices that I just thew in there. These carrots were from my garden! The peppers were from my mother-in-laws garden. Recently I’ve discovered that I really love the taste of pickled carrots, so I decided I had to try a batch for myself. The end result has been pretty damn tasty.
And last but not least we have my first attempt at making ketchup! As you can see this consistency of this is closer to tomato paste than ketchup, but it is pretty damn tasty. I’m definitely going to try this again till I can get a perfect ketchup flavor and spreadable consistency.
So I’m back! And I hope to be posting these again more frequently. Next week I’m hoping to have a post about all that I’ve been canning. Until then, thank you for reading and don’t forget to share your Weekend Cooking post with me!
