Broccoli Pickles

The recipe and mind set is straightforward, broccoli is very tasty and readily available. But in most application it has you throwing away the stalk. With a tiny but of attention to detail, the broccoli stalk is quite tasty. And because I’m a Southerner I need to fit the cliche and pickle everything in sight. Here is a simple pickled broccoli that lasts a life time, and helps create a tasty snack were there once was waste.
