Because heat processing might damage the fragile berries, we skip the canning method and instead make what's called refrigerator pickles; they're not shelf-stable like the other pickles in this story, but they'll keep in the fridge for 2 weeks. The glistening jewels would be incredible as a sauce for duck breast, as part of a cheese platter, spooned onto ricotta-topped crostini, draped over yogurt, or plopped into cocktails.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Add berries; cover and chill 8 hours.

Step 2

Drain berries in a colander over a bowl, reserving liquid. Discard spices. Divide berries among 12 (half-pint) jars.

Step 3

Bring vinegar mixture and honey to a boil in a saucepan. Divide hot vinegar mixture among jars, filling to 1/4 inch from top. Cover with metal lids; screw on bands. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.
