Pickled Peppers & Carrots  Not Your Toddlers Carrot Croquettes

Any food52 member is welcome to help us test our Editors' Pick candidates, so go call dibs on the recipe you'd like to test in the comments section below! We'd love to see some new testers in the mix. Don't forget to email us your notes (about 100 words) to [email protected] by next Tuesday at 5pm.

We'll collect your comments, decide the official list of Editors' Picks and publish your evaluation in the headnote if the recipe is selected as an Editors' Pick (with credit, of course!). And even if the recipe you test isn't chosen as an Editors' Pick, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Everything's taken, right?

Congrats to a wonderful looking batch of EPs! Wish I were in town and able to test something. Next week, I guess!
cheese1227 March 10, 2011
These all look very inventive. Sorry to be late to the testing party. But will have to try a few on my own this weekend!

Congrats to all the EPs and EP candidates...sadly late to the party for testing, but thrilled there are so many amazing carrot recipes to try!

I would love to test the kimpira this week.
Sagegreen March 10, 2011
Jennifer Ann, I would be happy to relinquish the kimpira to you if you would like. I don't want to be an over tester!
Jennifer A. March 10, 2011
Sagegreen, that is very sweet of you, but you were first (sorry i missed that!), so please go ahead and test. I have a burdock in my crisper, and so will make too, and put my notes in the comment section instead :) Never had burdock and so I am very interested in giving it a try!
Sagegreen March 10, 2011
Thanks, Jennifer Ann. I love how kind and civil everyone is on this site! It is just the best. Btw, I happen to have burdock and shichimi togarashi, which I hardly ever use! If you change your mind and prefer to submit your review to the editors, just let me know. But, otherwise I will send my review to them.
TiggyBee March 10, 2011
