Broccoli Stem Pickles

by Ooooby Crew

Ingredients

Stems from a bunch of broccoli
1 T honey
½ cup hot water
⅓ cup rice vinegar

Directions

Trim and discard the rough bottom ends of the broccoli stems. Peel the remaining stalks. Cut them lengthwise and then crosswise into matchsticks. Boil water in a saucepan and add the stems. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook for a minute or two until just tender. Drain and immediately refresh with cold water; drain again. Combine the honey and hot water in a bowl, stir until honey has dissolved and then add vinegar and mix well. Add the broccoli stems and stir to combine completely. Let sit at room temperature for at least 20 minutes and refrigerate.

It's fun and challenging to cook with what's available and the produce is so much fresher than anywhere else. Our family loves Ooooby!
