Kid-Tested, Parents-Approved! Must-Have Toys for Holiday Shopping - PARENTS BEST TOYS 2015

Kid-Tested, Parents-Approved! Must-Have Toys for Holiday Shopping

NEW YORK, NY (September 30, 2015)—As the holiday season nears, Parents magazine today revealed it’s picks for the best toys of the year for kids of all ages. Over the summer, kids, parents and editors tested the newest toys to hit the market and narrowed down their favorites to the top 49 toys for infants to school-age kids.
Compiled each year before the holidays, Parents magazine kid and parent testers play with hundreds of toys to choose their top picks for the must-have toys of the year. We consider ease of use, fun factor, how simple the assembly process is, length of play and first-person feedback from the kid toy testers.  
The Parents Best Toys of 2015 list appears in the November issue of the magazine and online.  Check out our behind-the-scenes video of testing day here.

Gardeners with lots of vegetables have the option of canning, freezing,  or pickling their spring and summer bounty. Over four centuries ago, India began pickling in order to expand the lifespan of  the cucumber and countries from Asia, Europe, South American and North America followed suit with other foods. Whether you want to preserve out-of-season foods or begin a journey in pickling,  consider picking up a copy of  Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol published by Schiffer Publishing, LTD. This gorgeous hardcover resource features over 174 recipes compiled by various experts with nearly 200 full-colored photographs for the pickling lovers.

Inside,  Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol  you will find more than recipes for cucumbers, cabbage and eggs. Learn the basics of pickling with the essentials in prep work, storage tips and detailed ingredient lists. There's an extensive A to Z vocabulary list. The first three chapters are pickling with alcohol, oil and vinegar followed by salt pickling and sugar pickling. The salt and sugar chapters features a collection of selective recipes. I was especially interested in the steeped vinegar and oils sections.

Pickling enthusiast -- keep an eye out for special bottles and jars!

What are some of your favorite pickled delicacies? I have eaten pickled artichokes, chow-chow, mushrooms, okra and much more. I am excited to test various recipes with my family from Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol.  Have you tasted pickled cheese, fruits or fish?

If you need a gift idea for a special friend or family member, Pickled Delicacies: Vinegar, Oil and Alcohol might just be the gift! Or, maybe you could whip up something special for them and present it at a buffet, luncheon or dinner?
