Preserving 2011 Review


Preserving season 2012 has begun, so I thought I'd summarize what worked last year, to highlight the good recipes.

Will do again for sure:
Escabeche (1st recipe)
Chile Pickle
Roasted Eggplant Preserve
Cilantro Chutney
Pickled Peppers [yellow bell pepper + serranos]
Emeril hot sauce
Green Zhoug
Fig - Citrus Jams 1,2
Apricot Preserves -- done already
Melon Jam
Citrus Marmalades -- done already

Meh:
Raw Eggplant preserve -- ok, but not mindblowing
Escabeche (2nd recipe) -- cooking technique a little different, not as good
Tipsy Tangerines -- waste. they are offseason of other fruits, so the ability to eat them in the summer isn't all that interesting
Pickled Peppers [other combos] -- texture uninteresting. bulky / not space efficient in fridge
Eggplant Pickle -- just way way too sweet
