Pickling is a great way to preserve in-season, farmer’s market vegetables like cucumbers, carrots, beets, onions tomatoes and cauliflower. Yummy, crunchy and with endless flavor variations, pickling can be tons of fun too! We want to demystify the process, since it’s actually quite easy. We guarantee that your friends will be very impressed if you bring a jar of homemade pickles as a hostess gift. Get your Pickling Game on!
Pickling Do’s & Don’ts
-DO invest in a canning kit that includes jar tongs and a wide funnel to make the process easier. We like this one from Ball ($10)
-DON’T cut corners. The jar and lid sterilization process is vital as well as the amount of vinegar used in order to get the perfect, crunchy pickle you desire.
