Do NOT alter ingredients or measures. When ready to serve, mix a jar of vegetable antipasto with a jar of your own home preserved salmon (or use canned salmon from the store) and add your personal finishing touches – mushrooms, olive oil and/or olives – to fresh antipasto each time it’s served.</p> <p dir=”ltr”> 1½ cups (375 ml) coarsely chopped carrots, about 4 medium</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2½ cups (625 ml) green beans cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) pieces, about 400g</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2½ cups (625 ml) cauliflower florets, about 1/2 medium head</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 cups (500 ml) coarsely chopped onion, about 2</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 cups (500 ml) coarsely chopped green pepper, about 2 medium</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 cups (500 ml) coarsely chopped red pepper, about 2 medium</p> <p dir=”ltr”>1½ cups (375 ml) coarsely chopped celery, 3 stalks</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 cups (500 ml) coarsely chopped zucchini or peeled eggplant</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 cups (500 ml) lightly-packed brown sugar</p> <p dir=”ltr”>3 tbsp (45 ml) pickling salt</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 cups (500 ml) red wine vinegar</p> <p dir=”ltr”>3 cans (each 5½ oz/156 ml) tomato paste</p> <p dir=”ltr”>¼ cup (50 ml) Worcestershire sauce</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 tbsp (25 ml) hot pepper sauce</p> <p dir=”ltr”><span style=”color: #ff0000;”>4 cloves Ontario garlic, minced</span></p> <p dir=”ltr”>3 tbsp (45 ml) dried basil</p> <p dir=”ltr”>1 tbsp (15 ml) dry mustard</p> Place 7 clean 500 ml mason jars on a rack in a boiling water canner; cover jars with water and heat to a simmer (180°F/82°C). Set screw bands aside. Heat SNAP LID® sealing discs in hot water, not boiling (180°F/82°C). Keep jars and sealing discs hot until ready to use. <p dir=”ltr”>Prepare and measure carrots; set aside.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>Prepare and measure remaining vegetables; set aside. If using eggplant, prepare last due to rapid browning.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>In a large, deep stainless steel saucepan, combine sugar, salt, vinegar, tomato paste, Worcestershire and hot pepper sauces and garlic. Stirring frequently, bring to a boil over medium-high heat.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>Add prepared carrots to wet mixture and let boil 2 minutes. Add remaining vegetables, basil and mustard. Stirring frequently, bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; boil gently for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>Ladle into a hot jar to within ½ inch (1 cm) of top of jar. Using nonmetallic utensil, remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if required, by adding more antipasto. Wipe jar rim removing any food residue. Centre hot sealing disc on clean jar rim. Screw band down until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip tight. Return filled jar to rack in canner. Repeat for remaining antipasto.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>When canner is filled, ensure that all jars are covered by at least one inch (2.5 cm) of water. Cover canner and bring water to full rolling boil before starting to count processing time. At altitudes up to 1000 ft (305 m), process (boil) filled jars for 25 minutes. Check<a href=”http://www.bernardin.ca/”> www.bernardin.ca</a> for boiling times at above 1,000 feet in altitude.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>When processing time is complete, remove canner lid, wait 5 minutes, then remove jars without tilting and place them upright on a protected work surface. Cool upright, undisturbed 24 hours; DO NOT RETIGHTEN screw bands.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>After cooling check jar seals. Sealed discs curve downward and do not move when pressed. Remove screw bands; wipe and dry bands and jars. Store screw bands separately or replace loosely on jars, as desired. Label and store jars in a cool, dark place. For best quality, use home canned foods within one year.</p> <p dir=”ltr”><strong>Deviled Turnip with Garlic</strong></p> <p dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://www.torontogarlicfestival.ca/themeupdate2021/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/deviled-hakurai.jpeg”><img class=”size-thumbnail wp-image-3706 alignright” alt=”deviled hakurai” src=”https://www.torontogarlicfestival.ca/themeupdate2021/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/deviled-hakurai-150×150.jpeg” width=”150″ height=”150″ /></a></p> From Front Door Organics (<a href=”http://www.frontdoororganics.com/”>www.frontdoororganics.com</a>) and (www.torontogarlicfestival.ca) Makes 8 servings <p dir=”ltr”>4 hakurei turnips, about 2” (5 cm) diameter, washed in cold water</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 large eggs, hard boiled</p> <p dir=”ltr”>2 tbsp (30 ml) mayonnaise</p> <p dir=”ltr”>½ tspn (2.5 ml) Dijon mustard</p> <p dir=”ltr”>1 clove Ontario garlic, minced</p> <p dir=”ltr”>⅛ tsp (0.6 ml) cayenne</p> <p dir=”ltr”>Salt and pepper to taste</p> <p dir=”ltr”>Paprika, as garnish</p> Mash eggs in a bowl with a fork.

Return the mixed ingredients to the saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon and reaches 172 F. Add the garlic. Pour the mixture into a container and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Strain to remove garlic pulp. Stir in the vanilla extract. Refrigerate for up to 8 hours or until the temperature reaches 40 degrees F or below.</p> <p dir=”ltr”>Pour into an ice cream maker and process for approximately 30 minutes. Serve as is for soft serve or freeze for another 4 hours to allow the ice cream to harden. To make without an ice cream machine: During freezing, every 30 minutes remove container from freezer, stir for 2 minutes, and return to freezer.</p>
