Comfort Cooking

Often, in the dead of winter, every Danish corpuscle in my body will start screaming "We haven't put up any food at all! We haven't preserved a single vegetable! We're all gonna die before spring!" And, seeing as I lack the equipment or patience to do proper canning, it generally comes down to refrigerator pickles.



The red jar is turnips and a few beets for color, such as you may have had at Lebanese restaurants. The orange one is a pseudo-Mexican preparation of carrots with red onion and some slices of jalapeños I grew last summer. The yellow jar is a cruciferous concoction of broccoli stems and cauliflower in seasoned rice wine vinegar.

This is the sort of thing I do to get through the winter depression. What about you? Any tricks for enduring the dark months? I can use all the advice I can get.
