I made this exactly as written (except... I only had 5oz of scallions/green onions) and they are delicious! The scallions wilted down, and got A TINY BIT slimy... but with their sweet, slightly tangy, amazing new flavor, texture is easily over-looked. I can't wait to put them in a bloody mary!
When my son-in-law brought me a bag of leeks, he mentioned that he liked them pickled. I was so thrilled to find this recipe! They turned out fabulous! I keep nagging him now to go back out to the woods and dig up some more.
