OKies, I hope you refer to the BIG ones, though the small ones are great grilled whole with just a light coat of salt, pepper, honey and garlic.... but when I catch a decent sized Occy, I like it best cold and pickled.
First you have to skin the Octopus legs..... i use the head for crab bait.... and then steam them for about an hour. At the same time, in a pot heat enough white wine vinegar to cover the octopus bit in a jar.......... a bit of sugar, a couple cloves of garlic and a chopped up chilli pepper and you are nearly there. when the octupus is steamed, cut it up and put in a jar, cover with the vinegar mixture and add in a splash of balsamic vinegar if you like..... try it... its nice
THANKS CABAL I WILL TRY IT.
I HAD A GOOD RECIPE FROM A GREEK TRAD. COOK BOOK.
2 cups water
2 cups of vinigar
wash and cut octopus
put the octopus on heat stir until the moisture
has been absorbed, then add 2 cups of water and allow to boil.
When the water is absorbed add the vinigar and peppercorns, allow to boil until all the vinigar is absorbed.
When cool :lips: put the octopus in a jar cover with oil.
