We’ve recently noticed a ton of our readers are making these bright and tangy quick-pickled strawberries, a recipe we snagged from chef Ken Oringer of Coppa in Boston. At Coppa, the pickled strawberries are served as part of a salad with arugula and roasted fennel, topped with Pecorino and mint. But these berries can spruce up anything from cocktails to dessert. Chef Oringer shares six more ways to put a jar to use. Making a batch of your own? Show us by using the #BAreaders hashtag!
