Experimental Cuisine #6 Candied Sauerkraut Relish And Other Candying Ideas

Candied Sauerkraut Relish And Other Candying Ideas
 Candied Salsa and Candied Fennel Bulbs (with syrup)

If you like to candy things try candying all the SALSA ingredients plus lime juice, cilantro and vinegar
The taste is similar to my Candied Jerk

If you lightly candy Fennel Bulbs with lemon juice you get a glorious smell in your kitchen and  the syrup and resulting slices of Fennel are akin to candied Angelica....


This is the Piece De Resistance
