Hey, freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano is good over practically everything!

I must confess.

When I was a child, mom and dad used to make pickles in gallon glass jars dad brought home from work. The pickles were a mix of garden vegetables, including green tomatoes, carrots, green peppers, and cauliflower. The day we opened the first jar of pickles to see if they were done was almost as exciting as Christmas morning. Among all the choices, the cauliflower was the favorite. The flavors of the pickling spices and vinegar had replaced any actual cauliflower flavor leaving a great vinegary crunch in every bite.

Hoot is 100% right. Pickled is the only way to eat an otherwise hated vegetable.

I substituted cauliflower for beans in a pickled bean recipe once and it worked out great. I should do that again. Thanks for reminding me about that one...

I know a lot of folks who buy those pickled veggies and the cauliflower is always the favorite. They can have mine.

Oh yeah, those are good eats. How did we all forget about pickled cauliflower?

There is a name for it, but I can't think of it at the moment. All I can think of is that it begins with a "G".
