We all love a good pickled red onion, but you can quick pickle almost anything. Crisp vegetables such as radishes, green beans, and peppers are first-rate candidates. Take a trip to the farmers’ market and see what you find. If you can eat it raw then, most likely, it makes a great quick pickle.
Peaches have a pretty long season, which usually is from the end of May through September. These best peaches are those that have been left on the tree until the very last minutes, allowing sugars to fully develop. Peaches should be slightly firm to the touch, with a light floral scent. For this recipe, use peaches that are firm-ripe so that they do not fall apart as you cook them. These caramelized peaches are so versatile; they can be used in sweet and savory dishes alike. They are great in salads or spooned over vanilla ice cream.
