Thread: Thai mixed pickles

  1. #1
    Dave Balderstone Guest

    Default Thai mixed pickles

    I made these mixed pickles today:

    <http://www.canadianliving.com/food/thai_mixed_pickles.php>

    Next time, I'd probably double the non-veggy ingredients as the liquid
    was a little shy of covering the mix, so I'm using a large zip-lock and
    turning frequently.

    I'll report back on how they turn out.

    Oh, a warning... The recipe uses beets.

    ;-)

    Took a while to connect, and lots of "waiting" messages, but I got it in
    Seamonkey (Firefox engine).

    I'm not sure Thai folk use beets.... or cloves much for that matter, but
    it looks interesting and refreshing.

    Cloves, like nutmeg and mace, are native to Indonesia, which is close
    enough to Thailand that I'd imagine they were known to the Thai for a while.

    Historical aside: there was lot of fighting over the source of these
    spices in centuries past, among Arabs, Portuguese, English and Dutch.
    The Dutch had most of Indonesia (Dutch East Indies) bar a little bit of
    Sumatra and one small island called Run, in the middle of nowhere (but
    close to the only known supply of nutmeg and mace). The Dutch were so
    terrified of the English that they arranged a trade, gaining this little
    "Gilligan's Island" called Run and giving up New Amsterdam, which the
    British renamed Manhattan.

    Sorry for the OT post, but it seemed appropriate as I sit here in
    Indonesia while they celebrate their national independence day (August
    17 1945 is when they declared independence).

    Thai Mixed Pickles
    By The Canadian Living Test Kitchen

    These sensational tasting, glamorous looking sweet-and-sour pickles
    can be served with satays or with roasted pork tenderloin but they
    complement sandwiches, cold meat and salmon equally well. Look for
    small golden beets for a brilliant mix.

    and red pepper into similar-size pieces. Slice onion.

    In large bowl, toss together beets, cucumber, carrots, red pepper and
    onion; top with hot pepper and garlic.

    In saucepan over medium heat, toast coriander seeds, peppercorns and
    cloves, shaking pan often, until fragrant, about 3 minutes.

    Add vinegar, 1/2 cup (125 mL) water, fish sauce, ginger and sa< stir
    in sugar. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

    Line sieve with cheesecloth and set over bowl of vegetables; pour in

    No, but you can make "Chinese mixed pickles", or "Oriental mixed pickles"
    without the fish sauce. Chinese style is sweet, you may have to play with
    the sugar, but my guess is that it will be too sweet and you should reduce the
    sugar.

    I made these last week... and posted a link to the recipe.

    They turned out nice, but I'm a bit disappointed with the cucumber. I
    wonder if using pickling rather than english cuke would have turned out
    crunchier.

    The recipe has a subtle heat that sneaks up on you, something that
    totally agrees with my palate.

    Wonder no more, pickling cukes would make all the difference.

    The english cuke does have a bit of a crunch on the skin side, so it's
    not a total loss, but next time I think I'll use the picking cukes and
    ice them beforehand.

    There you go, a typical method of making cukes crunch.

    Yes. Many people who keep kosher don't mix fish and meat in the same
    dish and they sub soy sauce. It's not the same thing, but similar.

    1 Tbs of fish sauce shouldn't be noticable. You can always cut down on it.

    I've never seen cloves used in Thai cooking.

    You can always make kim chee, too.

    Oy, you had to mention that. The mixing of fish and other things is such a
    problem when it comes to keeping kosher. As Brian said, some don't mix
    fish and meat, some don't mix fish and dairy, most don't care.

    One family I know won't mix fish and dairy, except bagels and lox. They do it
    because they are from the US and can't give it up, but the justification is
    the rules of mixing fish and dairy depend upon if it is hot or cold.

    The main problem is that since the founding of the State of Israel people
    found out that people who follow the rules set down in Germany are in the
    minority and even within them there are variations.

    It's always a bit of culture shock for people coming here from the US/Canada
    who think that their way of keeping kosher is the only way and they find out
    that it is a very small minority.

    Geoff.

    My husband would DIE if I made kim chee - he works with a guy who brings it
    to work often and hubby comes home complaining about the smell ;-)

    the mixed pickles sound good tho!
