Quick Pickled Fennel with Orange Slices on Serious Eats

quick pickled fennel

Earlier this week, I devised a quick pickled fennel recipe for Serious Eats. If you like fennel, this pickle will make you very happy. It starts with a salting step that helps the fennel release some liquid and then has you toss the fennel with some freshly ground black pepper and sliced orange.

The oranges lend some sweetness and play nicely with the apple cider vinegar. I eat this one straight from the jar with my fingers, but if you have better manners than I do, I recommend drizzling a small portion with some olive oil and eating it with a fork.

If you’re ever interested in seeing all the pickle columns I’ve written for Serious Eats, I’ve added them to the bottom of my recipe index. Scroll all the way down and feast your eyes on all that pickly goodness.

  1. Oh my, these look divine. I’ve really fallen in love with fennel this winter, and it looks like the orange takes these pickles into the over-the-top delicious arena.

    (And I don’t have better manners than you– I too would eat these with my fingers.)

    • I think that the unfiltered vinegar with the mother probably has a few more health benefits than the apple cider vinegar without it. But in terms of flavor, they’ll be fairly comparable.

  2. That pickle recipe looks great! I love fennel with citrus. If you are on a fennel kick, do you know the caramelized fennel pasta recipe in Deborah Madison’s Local Flavors? I was just thinking about that recipe yesterday–it gives the fennel an entirely new (to me) taste and texture.
