Although it is not a matter of pride - I classify myself as a #plantkiller. I and me, who has made a silent #pinkypromise to myself to never grow any plants, have utmost respect for people with a green thumb. After a number of unsuccessful attempts of growing greens in my summer garden I found solace in picking from other people’s farms - if you can’t win them join them ....Now for past many years my most favourite summer passion has been #picking #freshproduce from neighbouring farms.
#Canadiansummer has been specially good this year and amongst other summer activities I have indulged into a lot of #fruitpicking. Having harvested a very #content #berrypicking and #cherrypicking summer I was looking for #thingstodo on a September evening when I recollected a friends post on #pepperpicking. That was it - I got the location from the friend and off I set to unearth this fiery treasure.
At the farm was introduced by the caretaker to this medium size pepper that was a #goodchoice for #pickling. What next - off I went, with a basket in my hand, on an hour long captivating journey that turned out to be a sizzling experience #parexcellence.
Being from a family of pepper fanatics my agenda was straight and simple pick enough peppers to last me for the long #Canadianwinter. On returning home wash, clean and slit the peppers from one side. Mix together crushed mustard seeds with salt and turmeric add oil, vinegar and lemon juice to it and give this mixture a gentle whip. Finally add this to the peppers give it a shake and store these in jars. And this is exactly the course of action I followed. These carefully picked #Freshpeppers right from the farm are now stored away in #bernardinmasonjars #masonjars to be enjoyed with #hotmethidhebra , #paratha, #fafda, #papdi and more. #wearefoodies who #lovetoeat and #weareproudofit #Artxcetera
