Does anyone know what they are? I don’t…
Not a clue!

The ribbon hints at Italy! Some kind of home made preserves?
I saw these in Budapest
OK, same flag colours 🙂
I hadn’t thought of that.
The red ones look like stuffed red chili peppers, the white ones look like some members of my family! 🙂
You have a happy smiley family!
Of course I know, Andrew. Although done with a fancy smiley face they are stuffed capsicums/peppers (special small ones) with shredded cabbage and made with vinegar + to be sour. A wonderful winter side dish (salad). In Croatia the sour capsicums stuffed with cabbage are not traditionally made with such a smile (probably slice of red capsicum plus two black olives) but it doesn’t hurt. Those in your photos probably originate for one of the Easter European countries or at least the idea of them.
Thanks. They were as seen in Budapest.
There ya go! 🙂 if you haven’t had some try in winter or autumn grill some kransky sausages , fry some chips and cut out some sour peppers with cabbage as salad… good old fashioned cold weather Eastern European tucker – beats a hot dog any day 😀
I’ll try it!
They look very happy anyway!
They sure do. Pickled in alcohol perhaps?
Pickled something, with clove eyes and pimento smile. Turnips and radish?
Would anyone really pickle radish?
As someone with a German background… I will pickle anything! Eggs, pig feet, herring… My favorite is asperagus. Great in Bloody Mary’s!
Garlic cloves in oil and vinegar?
They didn’t look like garlic close up!
They are actually kind of cute.
Well I was going to say peeled crab apples until I read through the comments. Pickled heads of some sort. Definitely not for eating for this girl. Creepy indeed!
There have been some credible suggestions but I am not convinced by any of them. I didn’t buy a jar or sample them so I do not have the definitive answer!
Wouldn’t want them smiling up at me from the plate!
I agree – they could ruin a good meal.
