    Perspectives: What’s Cooking Around the Conference

    Pastor Jack Laskowski: Haitian Pikliz

    January 24, 2017 / By Pastor Jack Laskowski, Spencerport and Adams Basin UMC's

    I attended two Volunteers-in-Mission trips to Haiti in 2004 and 2006. We worked in the little town of Hermitage, helping to build a church and a school. It was a beautiful village on the coast. The faithfulness and hospitality of the Haitian people was both humbling and inspiring.

    On the trips, I was introduced to Haitian Pikliz, which is a staple in just about every household. Since then, I can't get enough of it!

    Enjoy the recipe, but be forewarned that it can be a bit spicy!

    Haitian Pikliz

    2 ½ cups cabbage slice thin
    1 cup julienned carrots
    ½ cup thinly sliced shallots
    6 hot peppers quartered
    3 sprigs of thyme
    8 whole cloves
    1 tsp kosher salt
    3 cups white vinegar
    3 tbs fresh lime juice

    Mix together to dissolve salt and chill for three days, shaking twice a day.
