Preserving Summer Flavors


Summer calls for home made pickles, jams, and relishes, bursting with all the aroma from sun ripened produce. As a foodie I love it when I don’t run out of food and the views of a well filled pantry with home made delicious additions to the menu gives me a sense of comfort. Sounds familiar? Then the next recipe is one for you!

I love these pickled cherry tomatoes to any kind of cheeses, for Sandwiches and Wraps. Worth a try. Enjoy!
p.s. the recipe is from my mom’s cookbook “Die Vegetarische Kochschule” 🙂

Pickled Cherry Tomatoes

What to Buy for 1 glass (3l)
1 small piece fresh ginger
2 l water
2 tbsp salt
1/2 l white wine vinegar
300 g acacia honey
3 cinnamon sticks
3 bay leaves
1 kg cherry tomatoes
1 large glass with screw on lid or rubber lined lid, sterilized

How To Make It
Slice the ginger root with the skin. Bring to a boil water with vinegar, ginger, bay leaves honey and cinnamon.  Add the tomatoes and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.
Place the tomatoes in the glass, pour the hot liquid over and close the lid.

Chef Gabi’s Tip
Let the flavors develop for at least a week or longer. Once the glass is opened place it in the fridge and consume within a week.
You can also distribute the same amount of pickled tomatoes into several smaller glasses if you require smaller quantities weekly.

Even if your diet is good, a cleanse can restore your immune system and protect yourself against environmental toxins that pave the way for disease bearing bacteria, viruses and parasites.
According to many healing experts, detoxification through special cleansing programs may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune-deficiency diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and candida.
In the animal kingdom and in traditional cultures, routine fasting which allows the body time to clean itself out has been normal practice. Just think how many showers you take in a year to clean the outside of your body and then how many cleanses you do in a year to clean the inside of your body?

There are excellent cleanses that can be done with food ingredients – learn our top tips to detox building up to a purer, cleaner, leaner and radiant You.
