You can make pickles from all kinds of vegetables, but did you know that you can also pickle seeds to add spice to dishes? I harvested a bunch of fresh nasturtium seeds and did a quick refrigerator pickle with them, adding my last winter garden beets and carrots. Nasturtium seeds are sharp and peppery, like horseradish, and are good in tiny doses to add spice to dishes.
You can use this pickling liquid to pickle any hearty veggie, such as beets, carrots, or cucumbers. If you are growing nasturtiums, they tend to ramble and they produce tons of seeds. You want to harvest the seeds when they are still green, not brown and papery.
