Do you know what I really love about late summer? It is its richness of fruits and vegetable that nature offers to us. I have a garden and I can’t wait for my blueberries, redcurrants, chokeberries, tomatoes, courgettes, and apples to be ready for harvesting. I love tomatoes and courgettes. Yesterday I could earn the last courgette in my garden.
Of course it is a thing to eat the vegetables and fruits as fresh as possible, but sometimes the harvest is so rich that you can’t eat all of the fruits or vegetables. In this case it is good to know how to cure food. One easy way of curing food is to preserve it.
Preservation is just one reason why I prepare the Easy Homemade Mediterranean Relish. Another one is that I want to save at least a bit of summer. It is always good for my mood to open a jar of it e. g. on a grey and rainy November and to simply enjoy it. It goes well with pasta, potatoes, Vienna sausage, a steak, or a slice of bread.
As I use red wine to prepare the Easy Homemade Mediterranean Relish I think it goes without saying that it cannot be served to children unless you subtititude e. g. grape juice for the red wine. Now I would like to make a remark on the oil Iuse in this recipe. I us a two tablespoons of a flavoured oil, that is the rosmary oil. If this is not available, take 2 tablespoons of extra virgin oil and season it with rosmary.
Incidentally this recipe is also available in German. Just click here.
