Planning what to cook this week/end? Remember the pulse! And think outside the pot. Lentils, for example, can be crispy and crunchy, or serve as a bed for a meat-centered meal or even be featured in your dessert -- as seen in these unique dishes I enjoyed at Stephanie Izard 's Little Goat in Chicago during a Canadian Lentils event last November.

Our co-leader Sarene made pickled turnips from the Jerusalem Cookbook.

Now here's David Lebovitz's take on them.
Love his blog comments about them: "It’s hard to get people excited about turnips. But on a recent trip to the Middle East, one of the things I loved most about the generous spreads of salads, roasted meats, and creamy-white cheeses that were a part of just about every meal, were the pickles – including pickled turnips, which were served even at breakfast." +David Lebovitz  #tastingjrslm

Just in time for long wknd - the Sept. topic is here and we're pickled pink to announce it: Pickling!

In Ottolenghi 's words from a Serious Eats article: "In Jerusalem one of the identifying features of all cuisine is pickles. Everybody eats pickles with their food. There are these turnips pickled with beet juice so they go pink. ... People also love pickling cauliflowers and cabbage and cucumbers. I quite love pickles."

The quick pickled onions and dates from the spinach salad in Jerusalem is a great example of how versatile & simple pickling can be. What's your favorite kind of pickle?
