Get pickling! Pickling is one of the oldest and healthiest methods of preserving and consuming vegetables and fruits. Pickles are usually fermented in a way that they aid digestion and improve gut bacteria. They enhance food flavours and are available throughout the year. However, most of us do not pickle things ourselves; instead, we buy them off the shelf. Packaged pickles do not have the same health benefits as the ones made at home and can do more harm than good. In this book, Monish Gujral brings together a collection of 100 pickles to start you on your journey of pickling. These recipes are not only simple and easy to make, each also has health benefits. From the Italian Giardiniera (pickled vegetables) to the Israeli Torshi Left (white turnip pickle), from the Gari(Japanese ginger pickle) to the Cebollas Encurtidas (pickled onions from Ecuador), this book is a treasure trove of some of the best pickles from around the world. Start your lip-smacking journey today!
