PA Market Update Recipe: Pickled Blackberries

Want to learn how to make those pickled blackberries Chef Steph talked about yesterday on her live video? Check it out!

Zest from 1 lemon, peeled into strips with a vegetable peeler
4 cups ripe blackberries
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
2 teaspoons kosher salt

In a small saucepan, heat the apple cider vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, salt and 1 1/2 cups water over high, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Let cool completely. 

Pour the brine over the berries, making sure they're completely submerged. Let stand at room temperature for at least 24 hours and enjoy! Berries can be kept in the refrigerator sitting in the pickling liquid up to 10 days.

Also, don't throw away the picking liquid! Use it with equal parts olive oil for a blackberry-spiked vinaigrette or marinade for beef or pork.
