24 Aug Red Wine Braised Shrooms with Bulgar

I know it's the middle of the summer, but I've just had this irresistible craving for something substantial, meaty and sumptuous the last few days (screw the 90 degree heat!).

The crazy part? They are SO easy to make. Like 15 minutes from grocery bag to jar and you will never buy a store bought pickle again easy. All you need is to boil up a brine, trim your kirbys (the famous pickling cucumber), throw everything in a jar, and stick them in the fridge for a few days and you have transformed the humble cucumber into something with massive pickle power! A couple of tips: 1. Slice a tiny (like an 1/8 of an inch tiny) bit of the blossom end off of your cucumber. If the blossom isn't attached anymore, you can find it on the opposite end...
