I have been wanting to jar pickles for a while and I finally got to do it. Whenever I haven’t done something before I just look up a whole bunch of recipes and then make my own modification, taking the things I like best from each recipe. For the pickles I used yellow mustard seed, dill seed, black peppercorn, a dash of red chili flake, a bay leaf, and garlic cloves. It will be ready in a week and my fingers are crossed, I hope it turns out good. If it does, I’ll post the exact recipe.
This unique take on a sloppy joe is deeply satisfying just like a traditional sloppy joe but it is also very fresh and light. First, I put together some Tomato Cucumber Relish but left out the lemon juice. Next, I browned some lean ground turkey and added a can of my favorite sloppy joe sauce. Finally, I used a kaiser roll and hollowed out the top of the roll to create more room for the toppings. I topped the turkey with the relish and some feta cheese. Do not add too much of the relish, you want the turkey to be the star. This recipe is surprisingly good. Every time I took a bite I thought, “This is different, but this is SO GOOD.”
