I'm making good on my New Year's resolution to experiment with pickling vegetables in 2008. Above is pickled mixed vegetable salad from Anya von Bremzen's Please to the Table: shredded cabbage, onions, carrots and red peppers in a marinade made with water, vinegar, salt, sugar and sunflower oil. I'll post a recipe if this is any good.

Well, it certainly looks appealing. :)

Adele--It turned out to be pretty good. Look for a write-up soon!

Yep, I know that recipe, which I made already a few times. :) It is great both in terms of flavor and texture.

Curiously enough, I made an observation that Anya's savory reicpes tend to turn out much better than her savory ones. Still, many of her desserts are great as a source of inspiration.

Victoria--this recipe wasn't perfect--I had to do some tweaking and guesswork. In fact, a lot of Anya's recipes are like that. Still, the Please to the Table book is the best and most inspiring Russian/Soviet cookbook out there.
