With vegetables coming on thick and fast in the garden, using them up while they are fresh can be difficult.This how to quick pickle your favourite veggies in just 24 hours for a gut boosting tangy snack or side dish.
Use veggies that are crisp and without bruises or wrinkles. Rinse thoroughly and scrub if necessary.
Veggies to use: carrots, cabbage,onions, beetroot, asparagus, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, capsicum, broccoli, brussels sprouts.
Next choose some herbs and seasoning such as peppercorns, mustard seed, coriander seed, cloves, or fresh or dried herbs such as rosemary, thyme, dill, oregano. Sliced garlic, lemon or lime could also work.
Place veggies and flavourings into clean jars leaving about 6 cms at the top.
Heat 1/2 cup filtered water over low heat until boiling, then stir in 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and a little raw honey.
Completely submerge the veggies in brine, put lid on and cool at room temperature. Chill for at least 24 hours - then enjoy! If using a lid that seals they will keep well. Once opened they will keep in the fridge for up to a month or so.
