Summary

Try pickling veggies for yourself and see how simple (and delicious) it is.

Ingredients:

1 lb vegetables of your choosing (shredded cabbage, sliced cucumbers, carrot sticks, cauliflower florets, radishes cut in half, beets, etc.)
2 cups of water
1 cup of vinegar (white distilled and apple cider vinegar are our favorites)
1.5 tsp salt
1 tsp sweetener (maple syrup, cane sugar or honey, if desired)
1-2 tsp each of spices or other flavorings (mustard seeds, sliced or minced garlic, turmeric, black peppercorns, coriander seeds, etc.)
1-2 tsp of herbs (dill weed, bay leaf, thyme, etc.)

Instructions:

Wash and dry the vegetables. Peel the carrots, remove unwanted stems/roots from the carrots, cabbage, beets, etc. Cut vegetables into desired shapes and sizes.

For smaller volume pickles (shallots, chilies, onions, etc.)

  • In a medium pot, bring the water, vinegar, herbs/spices, and thinly sliced vegetables to a boil.
  • Once they reach a boil, turn off the heat, and allow the mixture to come to room temperature.
  • When it’s at room temperature, you can transfer to a glass container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For larger volume, chunkier vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, radishes, beets, etc.)

  • Add the flavorings. Divide the herbs and spices between the jars you’re using
  • Add the vegetables. Pack the vegetables into the jars, making sure there is a 1/2 inch of space from the rim of the jar to the tops of the vegetables. Pack them in as tightly as you can without smashing.
  • Make the brine. Place the vinegar, water, salt, and sweetener (if using) in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until it reaches a boil.
  • Pour the brine over the vegetables, filling each jar to within 1/2 inch of the top.
  • Gently tap the jars against the counter a few times to remove all the air bubbles. Top off with more brine if necessary.
  • Seal the jars. Place the lids on the jars and screw on the rings until tight.
  • Cool and refrigerate. Let the jars cool to room temperature, and then move them to the refrigerator to store.
  • Refrigerate for at least 24-48 hours before serving. They get better over time, so don’t feel like you need to consume them quickly!
