When autumn comes, you can smell the aroma of roasting peppers in the streets of the small Bulgarian towns and villages. Then you know that the season of pickled vegetables is coming. Diligent housekeepers try to preserve the summer fruits and veggies.  Colorful jars with tomato and pepper chutney (lyutenitsa), plum and apple jam, pickled round peppers, cauliflowers and carrots and other pickles appear on the basement shelves. You can learn more details about the subtleties of homemade pickled vegetables in Bulgaria and the most popular pickled vegetables recipes in Radio Bulgaria’s publication- Bulgarian cuisine: Its Pickling season.
