Good book on pickling?

ikea_gwMay 9, 2011

I really want to start pickling vegetables this year. I have cucumbers, beets, tomatoes, and many other vegetables growing in my garden right now. Since I am new to this, I'd like to get a book now so I can read it before the harvests start. Do you have a favorite book on pickling? Something that contains old fashioned but also newer and more international selection of recipes? Thanks!

"Canning for a New Generation" has some pickling recipes that are pretty bomb. She has a recipe for Persian Tarragon Pickles which is a recipe from Iraq and it's super yummy....she has hot carrots recipes, kimchi, beets, asparagus, jalapenos, radishes, baby asparagus, turnips, etc.

There's also "The Joy of Pickling", which I haven't bought because I'm not that interested in pickling and Canning for a New Generation has enough pickling recipes to serve my curiosity....

Another vote for Joy of Pickling. Lots of variety included and no concerns over any safety issues that you often find in other books.

I really like Canning for a New Generation too.

I've had some problems with the directions of Joy of Pickling recipes where the quantities were way off--like somehow pints and quarts were confused. I love her giardiniera recipe, though.

Another one for fresh pickles is Quick Pickles. I made the pickled turnips in gin recipe from that. Holy cats, was it good.

Better late than never...I recently got Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. It has TONS of recipes! It boasts over 400 recipes. They're awesome!

This link was posted on the forum, and I saved it. It's a 64 page document on pickling.
