    1. I love asian pickled treats. I travel a lot and I search out restaurants and shops with pickled goodies, and books to delight in. Here is a book that focuses on all these delicious asian wonders. The book covers Japan, Korea, China, India and Southeast Asia. I have not found a book so diverse before, it has everything. The recipes seem easy to follow, the ingredients found in most stores.I started out with the first recipe from Japan the miso pickle. Simple easy to follow direction that turned o [...]


    2. **Thank you Ten Speed Press and Netgalley for providing this in exchange for an honest review**This is an excellent book for a pickling novice. I had never pickled anything in my life, and I'm happy to say, the two recipes I've made so far have turned out great. I chose to try the Cucumber Arame Pickles and "Wasabi" Pickled Carrots. Both have very few ingredients and very short sit times. I planned on my first few attempts at pickling to be fails. I wanted to use recipes that would be easy to ma [...]


    3. My first run through of this I was kind of unimpressed. My second time through I marked the recipes I wanted to try & was surprised that there were so many. it's not a book I'll buy new but I might pick up a used copy. I'll definitely keep it checked out as long as I can or until I try all the recipes.



    4. So, I received this advanced copy on net galley in exchange for an honest review. (disclaimer and all that)This isn't going to be a typical review as seen in previous posts. Mostly, I just wanted to let you know that I genuinely liked it. Had I seen it at Barnes & Noble or online at or BN, I would still have purchased it. I think it is a great book for beginners as it does a great job at giving little tips and tricks, along with simple-to-follow recipes. I also like that it covers a semi-wi [...]


    5. As an experiment, I'd like to try all the versions of pickled garlic. This book is well-organized into chapters by parts of the world (Japan, Korea, China, India, Southeast Asia), and it's got exciting tips I never knew. (Or at least some I'd forgotten--the tip about how to peel many cloves of garlic easily)I'm eager to try many of these recipes and I'll update this review after I've attempted some.


    6. This is a great book! It was great to see so many different kinds of unique pickles and chutneys and condiments represented. Will definitely make some of these!


    7. Interesting recipes and techniques, but this is definitely a niche cookbook for someone with access to more obscure ingredients.


    8. ASIAN PICKLES: SWEET, SOUR, SALTY, CURED, AND FERMENTED PRESERVES FROM KOREA, JAPAN, CHINA, INDIA, AND BEYOND by Karen Solomon is much more than a cookbook as there's much trivia included and humor too! It's a very enjoyable read!A few months ago, my boss shared some yellow squash and zucchini from his garden that he had pickled. They were too delicious for words! I resolved right there and then to delve into pickling myself and was thrilled to find this book offered for review at Net Galley. I' [...]


    9. Japan: This chapter includes miso pickles (Misozuke), rice bran pickles (Nukazuke), pickled plums and pickled plum ‘vinegar’ (Umeboshi and Umezu), pickled ginger (Gari), Red pickled ginger (Beni Shoga), and more. The traditional section also includes recipes for pickling mustard greens, turnips, and seaweed. Then there’s a section of ‘inspired pickles’ courtesy of the author, such as a mixed ginger and shiso pickle, pickled Asian pear with lemon, and more. I haven’t yet tried any fro [...]


    10. Asian Pickles: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Cured, and Fermented Preserves from Korea, Japan, China, India, and Beyond
by Karen Solomon begins with an introduction about pickles and pickling.  For those of you that do not like to can, this book is for you!  As she explains, most of these recipes are not for long term storage.  These pickles age and ferment either on your counter or in your fridge.  But they look so good, I don't think trying to keep them for a long time is going to be an issue.T [...]


    11. pickle lovers rejoice!I have collected several books that give recipes for Asian pickles.Apart from the varieties of kim chi that I adore, one of my favourite pickles has always been Chinese lemon and lime pickles. I use the lemon pickle with a very tasty Charmaine Solomon (who is my major go to resource and is listed in the bibliography) Sri Lankan Beef Smoore recipe. I have made those pickles and given them away as presents to people who appreciate such things, including my butcher who is cons [...]


    12. Asian Pickles is a great introduction to Asian style pickling that should be more than adequate for the beginner - intermediate pickler, but slightly lacking for those advanced or looked for a more in depth book on asian pickling.One of the notable differences between Asian pickling and Western pickling is that asian pickling, as a whole, is relatively easier than Western pickling. Asian pickling is generally less sour and uses softer vinegars than the west, but also includes an entire family of [...]

    14. How lovely to find an author celebrating something I absolutely love, Asian pickles. I frequently cook East Asian and Indian dishes and now, after reading Asian Pickles, I will be making the pickles to accompany those dishes.Asian Pickles is a well written and well edited cookbook. It is written in a lively way that encouraged me to read it from beginning to end. The recipes are clearly written and use fairly easy to obtain ingredients. If you don't have an Asian market nearby the author provide [...]


    15. Asian Pickles provides pickle recipes inspired by the cuisine of Japan, China, India, etc but not recipes of the particular country. Karen Solomon deliberately choose ingredients that are likely to be available in the United States. The recipes are examples of the styles of the countries that the author enjoyed with most being quick pickles. My wife looked over the book and recognized some from her childhood that we are likely to try, so in this fashion, the book is a success. The processes are [...]


    16. Loving this paen to pickles from a writer who freely admits that she is a fermentation-crazy white lady who would be happy to eat banchan and rice every day for the rest of her life. ME TOO. Recipes are very accessible, covering Japanese, Korean, Southeast Asian and Indian refrigerator pickles of various stripes, as well as some very exciting sauces. There is a homemade Siracha recipe in here, folks. Everything seems very achievable and you can get as deeply into it as you like. Breaking News: I [...]


    17. This book is a feast for the eyes as well as the mouth. The photography really invites you to jump in and try the terrific recipes. Organized by region, I was easily able to find the Japanese pickles we fell in love with while traveling there. Each country has its own basic techniques described to help those who like to experiment on their own. The glossary, resources and index make it easy to access the information and to expand on what is offered. I think Karen Solomon has hit a home run with [...]


    18. I received a copy of this graphic novel from NetGalley for review.When I saw it, I though “I want it!” I love Asian Culture so I was wondering how the made some of their Pickles.I liked the book, it’s quite interesting, the recipes are well-described but I missed more photos of the final results!!! I love to see photos of the dishes.I would like to try some of the pickles but it will be difficult for me to find some of the ingredients…I have a lot of friends that love to cook and trying [...]


    19. first impression: book is split up into countries, with a listing of recipes at the start of each section. IS IT THAT HARD TO MAKE A FULL LISTING OF RECIPES AT THE BEGINNING?! ****i only made 1 thing from this blasted book, WTF. as a self-proclaimed pickle lover, i have let myself down. i'll def have to give this a go. plus, i have garlic pickles that will be waiting for me in 6 months.


    20. It's more than just cabbage kimchi or the ginger on the side of the sushi plate. Can't wait to try the Stuffed Cucumber Kimchi!! Click for My Full Reviewreceived a free copy through Blogging for Book for an honest review


    21. Absolutely enamored with Asian Pickles. Written with reverence, culinary mastery and wit, Solomon focuses on classic recipes from Japan, Korea, China and India with a small collection of recipes from other Asian cuisines. This somewhat small volume of recipes and commentary trumps other books twice its size. A must-have in your cookbook library.


    22. More for H than for me, I'm not a big pickle fan, but it was neat to read about pickling traditions and typical ingredients across multiple Asian cultures. Good reminder that pickle culture doesn't begin and end with the dill.


    23. I finished reading Thursday and bought mine Friday-- I couldn't imagine having to wait for the library copy every time I wanted a recipe. Though I haven't yet made anything, nearly half the pages are marked to-make, and the ones that aren't? -- purely a question of ingredient availability. Awesome!




    24. I am starting immediately!Excellent, easy & great sounding recipes! I am making everything! I highly recommend this book is a big part of my journey back to health!


    25. Yes, I read this book. The recipes all sound delicious. I will admit it. I have not made any of them yet, though. I may have trouble getting some of the ingredients that some of these require, due to my current location. That is certainly not the author's fault.
