I’ve been enjoying the pickles and preserves from one of my latest food shoots for a few weeks now. The pickled okra , cucumber sweets, pickled green tomatoes and fig preserves have accompanied biscuits, sandwiches, added a little extra punch to meals and honestly I’ve been nibbling on them pretty much all the time.  A few of the images from this post accompanied Wendell Brock’s article in yesterday’s food section of the AJC.  I’m super excited to share these little gems with you…. just in case you missed the paper.

If you need a tasty project for the weekend that you’ll enjoy all month long I highly recommend finding a few old jelly jars and making a trip to the farmers market to gather local veggies for pickling. You might even find what you need in your backyard or a neighbors! The link below provides recipes that Mr. Brock spent lots of time tweaking and perfecting.

These pickled green tomatoes weren’t in the article but they sure were good.
