Wow! This was awesome! I was so surprised that my 2 and 3 year old loved it too. We had this dinner for for several snacks and lunch too. The flavors are very complex but not too overpowering either. The spices are blended in a balanced porportion and the "pickling" flavor might not be what is expected. The flavor is not sour whatsoever, and is very mild too. Perfect! Thanks again Martha for posting yet another wonderful interesting recipe!
