Bread & Butter Pickled Fennel

Presented by Savory Grille


2 bulbs fennel, sliced 1/4-inch thick

1 tsp. turmeric

3 cups white vinegar

3 cups white granulated sugar

2 cinnamon sticks

5 whole cloves

2 bay leaves

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper


Place sliced fennel in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

Combine all remaining ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to ensure sugar is fully dissolved. Pour hot brine over fennel. When cooled, transfer to sealed containers and refrigerate. (Glass mason-type jars are recommended because the turmeric will stain plastic containers.). Chill two to three days before enjoying. This condiment may be stored in the fridge for several weeks. 

Serve on sandwiches, salads, as a garnish on entrees, or just nibble as a snack. The salty-sweet taste is addictive.
