Karl’s Japanese Pickled Cabbage and Carrots (Hakusai no sokusekizuke)

I decided to have salmon teriyaki for dinner and the meat and rice needs a vegetable. For Japanese cuisine this usually means some kind of tsukemono (漬物; pickled vegetables). The quickest and easiest method is salt preserving (塩漬け; shinozuke).

Karl’s California International Pickles

Two Sundays ago, I bought some Persian cucumbers for a dinner that did not happen. I did not want them to spoil. There were too many of them just to eat on my own, so I decided to make pickles with them.

Karl’s Japanese Quick Pickled Carrots

I made some shredded pickled carrots for Jan, while her mouth was healing. I did not think they were anything special, but she really liked them. Today, I was at the Japanese store and saw some nice carrots. I decided that I would make some more for my Japanese dinner tonight.

Karl’s Carolina Coleslaw

I am making orange glazed salmon and mashed yams tonight. While Jan is on her soft food diet this dish will be too hard for her to eat, however, Eilene wants something besides baby food for dinner.

Karl’s Pickled Beef Tongue II

My sister, Karen, and I were at the Christmas breakfast table reminiscing as one does. The subject of beef tongue came up. Our mother, Claudia, would make beef tongue occasionally as we were growing up. I decided to whip some up to go with the Chickyssoise I was making for dinner.
