Carolina BBQ Peppers

Baek Kimchi (White Kimchi)

Rating: 4 stars
Homemade baek kimchi (white kimchi), a Korean staple, is easy to make at home using napa cabbage, daikon radish, garlic, and vinegar.

Spicy Pickled Cauliflower

This has a mild pickling brine, but it comes with a little kick of spiciness to keep your taste buds interested. It's quick and easy, crisp, tangy, spicy, and delicious. This should last for about 3 to 4 weeks in the fridge.

Sauerkraut Russian-Style

Rating: 4.75 stars
This is how sauerkraut is made in our home in Russia. It only takes 5 days and keeps well in the refrigerator. Serve it with some mild-tasting oil and chopped onion. Sometimes cranberries and caraway seeds are added for additional flavor.

Crunchy classic dill pickle slices bring extra zing to an ordinary sandwich.

Pickled Padron Peppers

Rating: 4.94 stars
If you can't find Padron peppers, any small fresh pepper will work, especially jalapeno or red Fresno chile peppers.

Zucchini Pickles

Rating: 4.58 stars
A great way to use all those zucchini your garden produced! Most of the time spent on this recipe is letting the ingredients stand.

Crisp Pickled Green Beans

Rating: 4.55 stars
This recipe is from my Grandmother's cookbook she made to pass to all her grandchildren. They come out very, very crisp with a wonderful dill flavor. The red pepper flakes give them a nice punch. They are much better than the recipes that call for cooking the beans first.

Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

Rating: 4.68 stars

Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends.
