Whitney J’s Homemade Pickles/Giardiniera!

Easy easy easy, oh so crunchy, and delicious! This brine is perfect for pickling all kinds of veggies. This is a great project to include you kids on! My two year old LOVES to help fill the jars with the veggies! Wrap some twine, or ribbon around jar neck, and voila! A perfectly packaged gift! -Whitney J

Ingredients/Supplies:

  • Pickling Cucumbers (you can cut into spears, planks, or slice into circles) Veggies (cut up carrots, celery, garlic, onions, green peppers, peppers, cauliflower, ect)
  • Sterilized Mason Jars
  • Pot (not aluminum, as it is reactive)
