Pickling Mercer-Style

Pickling Mercer-Style

Pickling is an easy time tested method for intensifying the sweet and sour ends of the flavor spectrum and in doing so escalating overall flavor. Pickled onions are an excellent example of this technique. To begin carefully remove the papery skin of your onion, in this case cipollini onions. Taking care not to be wasteful. After peeling slice the cipollini onions into thin rings. Remember once the onions are pickled they will lose a little bit of their volume. To pickle the onions you will need to heat up a sugar and vinegar mixture. We'll add some spices and aromatics for extra flavor. Combine all the ingredients for your pickling liquid turn it up to a boil an pour it over your sliced onions. The pickles will pick up strong sweet and sour notes from the sugar and vinegar. To intensify the color you can add a large slice of red beat to the mixture when it is hot.

    knife great sharp chef's culinary easy grip handle love price

    I received this exact knife in my kit when I went to culinary school and so when I needed an additional knife it was a no-brainer of which type I was going to get. This was the best price that I could find anywhere. The textured soft grip is comfortable and doesn't slip from your hands. The blade holds an edge well with regular maintenance. I highly recommend this particular knife and this brand.

    from Yamato Posted on

    This knife is hands down the best I've ever used! No more crushing my tomatoes or bread, this thing will even cut raw sweet potato with ease. Every kitchen needs at least one good knife and this one is mine.

    from Krods Kitchen Posted on

    I bought a lot of these knifes. I love everyone of them. Wow that is what comes to mind when i used these knifes for the first time. I did not know what to expect. but wow.

    from NY PIZZA PIE LLC. Posted on

    These knives use the same quality steel as other expensive brands. Do yourself a favor and simply get these instead at a quarter of the price. They are, however, thinner on the spine, and will require more frequent steeling. I enjoy steeling my knife anyways so this is hardly a problem.

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    This is a great working-chef knife. It holds an edge for a decent amount of time and has a solid weight to it. The handle is comfortable and easy to hold even when wet.

    Love this chef's knife. We keep one in our office kitchen for everyday use and it's perfect. Also have one at home for personal use.

    An excellent, multi-purpose knife that is backed by the no-activation-required limited lifetime warranty. The good weight distribution and razor-sharp blade allow the knife to do most of the cutting chores without much effort. The long bolster offers not only weight and balance, but also acts as a finger guard. The signature Mercer-Genesis-logo-riveted, contoured handle provides solid, strain-free grip. The overall length of the knife is 13-1/8"; the handle is 4-7/16". Kudos again to WebstaurantStore for making this and other knives in the Genesis Series affordable to own.

    This is a great basic chef's knife. I have been using a knife from a cheap set for awhile and have been wanting to get a new one. I finally ordered this knife and it's actually enjoyable to cut now, and I'm not crushing my herbs. It has nice balance, a comfortable grip, and comes very sharp. For the price, this knife is an awesome deal.

    I love this knife! It's a perfect length for me and is SUPER sharp. I really like the grip handle too. It makes it easy to cut when you have wet hands.

    Here is a size comparison to an average lemon. Cuts like butter, obviously :)

    I'm a culinary student and this is the chef knife I was given per my degree. In the middle of my last quarter it was stolen so I am now needing to replace it.... The knife is so good and easy to use i'm replacing my stolen one with the exact same copy!

    Got these knifes with my knife kit. They are excellent for beginners! The bolster is sturdy, and it chops through lobster shells! Perfect for a Christmas gift.
