Pickling Vegetables
[Return to Topics]

Here's a good tried and true recipe for using those excess veggies.

3 quarts whitehouse vinegar
3 cups granulated sugar
pickling spices wraped up in a 5 x 5 inch cheese cloth, tied up.

Bring the above ingredients to a boil for 5 minutes.

Remove the pickling spices in the cheese cloth and dispose of.

Rapid boil canning jars 10 minutes for sterilization, as well as lids and seals.

Throughly clean green beans, onions, baby corn, carrots, asaparagus, new potatoes, beats, squash, or an assundry of veggies. If you pickle beats, make sure you can them separately for your veggies will turn purple.

Pack hot jars as full and tight as possible, because the pickling causes shrinkage. Pour the hot liquid over the veggies leaving 1 inch at the top. Add 1 tbs. salt. Seal lids with just enough tension to close them. Sit on counter for 24 hours until all lids have popped down. Then finish tighteing the lids further.

These veggies stay crips and yummy through all the winter months.

DW that stuff sounds DEEElish! Never heard of anyone around here doing any such of a thing.
Poorest garden year I can ever remember. No all dried up. A few beans. Maybe some squash. Even worse than last year when it was cool and damp all summer. This year was just the opposite.
BTW, I did have a good feed of poutine, not in Quebec but in northern VT. It was good but not the same. Cheese didn't hold together.

Whats so cool about them Les, is that you can can all different types of things together, thus opening a jar of mixed veggies. I could not believe how crispy these things were when I bit into a carrot. Just like you pulled it from the garden this morning!
