I really need to stay off Pinterest…all over it are cute skewers of traditional combinations of traditional Italian antipasto items, like tomatoes, olives and artichokes. Then I found this recipe for an Irish pub version.
So I turned out a few for our family High Holiday celebration. My aunt handles the main components but I am usually in charge of appys, dessert, and wine. I cut little gherkins in half, added Dubliner cheddar, sliced corned beef and homemade pickled Brussels sprouts.
I cooked the sprouts till they were just going soft and then iced them to stay green. Then poured a boiling pickling liquid over them and stuck them in the fridge overnite. Then I added them to the “pub skewers” for our pre dinner nosh!
