Recipe of the Week: Giardiniera (Italian Pickled Vegetables)

The following recipe for Giardiniera (Italian Pickled Vegetables) was kindly sent by SurvivalBlog reader “Animal House.” Chef’s Notes: I developed a love for giardiniera when I lived in Europe; and now it is a family favorite. In the summer we add giardiniera to cold rice, salad, soups or eat as a snack. In winter add to warm rice, soups, stews and casseroles, or as a stand-alone vege with dinner.

Recipe of the Week: Quick Orange Marmalade, by St. Funogas

The following recipe for a very Quick Orange Marmalade is from SurvivalBlog reader St. Funogas. Chef’s Notes: If you’re a marmalade fan, you’ll love how quick and easy this recipe is and the fact that there are only three ingredients and no added pectin. Noe, however, that it’s not going to have that nice clear look like Smuckers, but theirs can’t be made in 20 minutes either.
