Pickled Mandarins

Spring is here and it's time for a new recipe. This one comes to us courtesy of the Costco Connection, but of course we've made one slight improvement - Lucille's Gourmet Barrel-Aged Honey in the ingredients list. Try them out and let us know what you think.


18 whole Mandarins

1 bunch Fresh Cilantro

1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

3 large slices of Ginger with the skin on

2 Bay Leaves

1 tsp Coriander Seeds

10 Green Cardamom pods

1 tsp Black Peppercorns

1/2 tsp Fennel Seeds

1 Tspn Salt

2 oz Lucille's Gourmet Barrel-Aged Honey

3 quarts Water


Toast all dry ingredients in a stainless steel pot on medium head for 5 minutes or until you start to smell them heating up. Add Water and Lucille's Honey and bring to a boil.

Turn off the heat and let the mixture steep for 45 minutes.

Zest 4 of the Mandarins using a Microplaner and then peel them all.

Finely chop the fresh cilantro.

Place the peeled Mandarins in a gallon sized glass jar. Add chopped Cilantro and Mandarin zest. Pour steeped liquid over Mandarins, cover and refrigerate for 2 days to allow the flavors to marry.

Stay tuned and we'll give you some ideas on how to use these Pickled Mandarins.
