Marinated Garlic Salad

  • by

Here’s a super easy recipe for all you Garlic lovers out there. Marinated Garlic goes great on the side of Steaks / Chicken / Pork or vegetables. You can also add Hot Peppers to the jars as well. Jalapenos and some Chili powder for a southwest flavor, a few drops of Sesame Oil and a couple Thai Chiles for an Asian style or Scotch Bonnet peppers and a tsp of Allspice for a Jamaican Jerk style Garlic.

Homemade Cured Bacon

I found this instructable on making your own cured bacon. It was taken from a recipe out of  Charcuterie. This would make for a really neat weekend project, plus it will give you the option to add your own seasonings and flavors…. maybe a Sweet Habanero Breakfast Bacon.

Japanese Rose Pickled Ginger

  • by

I am absolutely addicted to the pickled ginger that you find at all the sushi houses. Fresh Pickled Ginger with Wasabi and Soy sauce is so flavorful to me that it goes great on all types of dishes. The price however, is off putting. The small jar of ginger at the store runs about 7 bucks for the small 8 oz jar. If you go thru a ton of this, it definitely is more price effective to make your own, which is surprisingly easy to make.
