Milkweed is a wonderful wild food that is relatively unknown. It is abundant and makes a delicious tender vegetable similar in flavour to green beans when prepared properly. We take summer harvested small milkweed pods, prepare them through a process of leaching to make them edible and pickle them in a standard pickling brine of apple cider vinegar, pickling spice and our organically grown garlic. These soft pickles make an interesting addition to pickle trays and cheese platters, as a cocktail garnish, and they are also wonderful on sandwiches and burgers and their tenderness allows them not to ‘slide out’ like a traditional pickle can sometimes do. They make a wonderful conversation starter at parties!
Our milkweed pods are harvested in large old fields that have never been sprayed and are harvested in a
way that does not harm the plant or the Monarch Butterflies that rely on them.
Ingredients: milkweed, apple cider vinegar, water, garlic, pickling salt & spices
