I do a lot of cooking and almost every night I like to try something new. I share a lot of pictures of my food on my Instagram page, so I thought why not share them on my blog. Although this blog is called Sistah Girl Desserts, I realized that this site shouldn't be limited to just desserts because we love to try different tastes and mixtures, whether sweet or savory. I love to cook, using new or old recipes and finding new ways to try new epicurean delights.
I saw this sauce on a video and I immediately wanted to try to make it. I had never heard of pickled blueberries before and since I love blueberries, I wanted to try to make something different from what I am used too.
I know how to make a sweet sauce, but I never thought about making blueberries have a savory flavor.
After searching the internet for a good recipe, it seems that everyone makes them different but always with vinegar being the main ingredient. Some say to use white distilled, while others prefer to use different vinegar's. I use many vinegar's, but since this is my first time making this, I used organic apple cider vinegar. Also I discovered that some like to use heat while others just refrigerate overnight. I combined all the ingredients and just refrigerated.
I decided to add freshly ground pepper and used sea salt instead of kosher salt. First thing I'm going to do is try this on some lamb chops. I take a pic and let you know if it is a triumph or failure.
