Growing up with a grandmother who loved to pickle, this writer's associations with a barnee were usually of the finger-licking variety. Little jars of goodness brimming with spices, sealed with love and stored away for later. So when we came across a rather pickle-minded daughter-in-law and mother-in-law duo, Ruta Karve Misra and Vandana Misra, all those memories come tumbling back. Drawing from old family recipes, Ruta and Vandana retail about ten different kinds of preserves and pickles, with roots from across the country, under the label Barnee. Try the South Indian Vadu Maanga, or even the Ad'bhut Aam, made using the fiery Bhut Jolokia chilli from Guwahati.
