cornichons

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

cornichons

I was forever seeing recipes using them but had never seen them in shops, probably because I don't know where to look. Anyway I found some yesterday but can't recall any of the recipes using them. Grateful for help.

using cornichons

Do you want a recipe for using cornichons - to pickle them as they do here in France? I've just made 4 jars.

CG@H, thank you, I'll look it up.
Snowy, I'd love the recipe, please, though I haven't seen any small gerkins to buy; perhaps I should grow some. Not very green-fingered!

Good all round nibble

Cornichons make a great nibble with cold meat or cheese platters along with silverskin pickled onions. I always cut a cornichon or 2 in half lengthways and pop on top of cheese on toast before grilling and add to sandwiches for some crunch. chillie

3 Years Late for Recipe!

Hello Snowy,

Just caught your comment about cornichons. I have become addicted to them and have just bought some seed. Please let me have your recipe. Thank you.
