When we went to Norway, I fell in love with the simple but differently spiced food.

Of course, most Scandinavian cookbooks aren't in English, or are Magnus Nilsson's doorstop, which can make it all a bit inaccessible.  (At least until you realize it's all Irish cooking but with more dill/ginger/cardamom/caraway.) 

Its worth it, though.  Darra Goldstein's Fire and Ice cookbook has a really simple quick pickle of finely sliced rhubarb and cucumbers (these are from my garden) with grated ginger & crushed pink peppercorns.  So delicious, and really crisp & tangy.

I actually remember seeing this on IG and being like 'DO WANT.' And it's even in my eating plan I think, lol.

The pickle liquid is to heat 1/2 c cider vinegar with 3 tbsp sugar, and then put in the peppercorns and grated ginger (1 tbsp) once the sugar is dissolved. Since I like stuff sour, I would use 1 1/2 tbsp instead, since most of the liquid won't end up on your plate anyway, unless you're using it for a beer & whiskey chaser. : ) Lemme know if you want a pic of the whole recipe and I will DM it to you.

I would love it, yes, if it's not too much trouble! :D
