Pickled Mushrooms with Chili

 Yesterday we talked about how easy and delicious preserving foods at home can be. Today we have a recipe for you that shows you how!

Ingredients: 
1 serving of fresh mushrooms 
Twigs of fresh thyme
1 chili pepper
1/4 cup (65 mL) white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt 

Ingredients:
Clean the mushrooms and then pat them dry. Pluck the thyme leaves. Cut the chilies into rings, removing the seeds. Add the vinegar and spices to a pot and bring to the boil. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Allow to cool and then pour into a glass that can be sealed well. Pour the olive oil over it and close the glas. After pickling, the mushrooms should continue to soak for at least 3 days.

Preserving Food At Home

As the colder months are approaching it is the perfect time to try out different ways to preserve fresh fruit and vegetables for the winter.

There are numerous possibilities for preserving food. One of the oldest methods is drying. In the dehydrator, in the oven or in the open air, fruits lose their moisture and become more intense in flavor. A fun fall activity is to go apple picking, cut the tasty apples into slices, sprinkle with cinnamon or a pumpkin spice mixture, and then dehydrate in the oven at 225℉ for 2 hours. This make for delicious and healthy apple chips!

Another option which works especially well for vegetables is pickling or freezing. Both freezing and pickling in vinegar results in significantly lower nutrient losses than drying. Vegetables such as carrots, radishes, and beets are wonderful pickled. Fruits such as berries and peaches particular are ideal for freezing. Whatever method you choose, you can’t go wrong!
