Tuesday Recipe- Pickled Gnome

Hello all, time for another delicious recipe! Of course, as you expected gnome is the dish of choice here. There are so many ways to prepare gnome. All of them delicious. I really encourage you to try different recipes. Explore! Let your taste buds soar!

So, for today I have decided to treat you to a popular snack beloved by the trolls of the Eastern Kingdoms. Pickled gnome is a tasty treat that children love to munch on after getting home from school and adults love equally well as a yummy pick-me-up after a long day of punting gnomes.

On to the recipe!

Pickled Gnome
3 cups gnome slices (I prefer thin cuts from the thigh, flank, or butt!)
10 li hing mui (optional)
1 cup rice vinegar
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup coarse salt

Place gnome slices in a clean glass jar with li hing mui, if using. Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a non-reactive saucepan and bring to a boil. When sugar and salt are dissolved, remove from heat and cool to lukewarm. Pour over gnome slices. Cover and let stand for 24 hours, then store in ice box.

Now, many may be aware that some humans love this dish but using green mango instead of gnome. If you are a fruit eating freak who enjoys the taste of a pickled slice of green mango over a thin, fresh slice of gnome thigh….that is up to you! Either way, enjoy!

Next week I will continue honoring our Eastern friends with a delicious dessert using gnome essence and a sweet rice flour! See you then!
