I have a theory that if you pickle it I will eat it. So far it hasn't failed me. But every time I have a pickle I think "it's delicious but I would change..." So finally I decided to do that and created my own pickling recipe. Now I may be a touch biased, but these are the most amazing pickles ever. I used this recipe to pickle cucumbers, carrots, and asparagus and all three are simply divine. Don't believe me? Try it yourself!
- 2 cups apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups white vinegar
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 3 cups water
- 1 clove peeled garlic per jar
- 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp whole peppercorns
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Combine all ingredients and stir to dissolve salt and sugar. Chop veggies to fit in 7 small canning jars. Fill the jars with the pickle liquid and refrigerate. Let sit 2 days before eating.
