Rhubarb Pickle

One of the first crops of spring, rhubarb makes a crisp pickle that complements fresh ham.

  • servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 2 cups apple-cider vinegar
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 (1 1/2-inch piece) fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 small dried chile peppers
  • 1 pound rhubarb, trimmed and cut into thin 5- to 7-inch batons

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Combine the vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt, and the sugar in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Stir, and set over medium heat; cook until the salt and sugar have dissolved, about 5 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Add the cloves, ginger, and peppers. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, and cook 1 minute more.

  3. Step 3

    Pack the rhubarb into a tall glass jar or a long plastic container. Pour the hot liquid over the rhubarb, completely covering it. Let cool, and cover. Refrigerate 24 hours and store, refrigerated, up to 1 week.
