I miss so much the assorted pickles my dad used to make back home that this year I have decided to try out his recipe. I know it’s a little late in the year but they should be ready in time for the Christmas feast . I wish I had some green tomatoes (gogonele) to pickle as well but it’s kind of hard to find them in November . I hope my assorted pickles turn out as good as my dad’s… I’ll let you know in a few weeks .

Cooking Sarmale for Christmas and all other major holidays is a Romanian tradition. They are usually made with pickled cabbage and stuffed with ground pork (sometimes combined with beef), rice and various herbs and spices. We serve it with polenta and a few generous tablespoons of sour cream.
