    Default Report: Pickled mixed vegetables

    Opened our first jar of mixed pickled vegetables yesterday afternoon.
    Excellent taste and crunch, even the turnips were tasty and did not
    cause gastric distress as cooked ones do. I should have purchased some
    red radishes to include but could not find any locally. The radishes
    tend to lend a red coloration to the other veggies and make a more
    attractive pickle.

    The mix included turnips, pearl onions, celery, cauliflower, and sweet
    pepper chunks. No cukes in this mix as they aren't available except as
    hot house items locally for at least another two months. This recipe was
    definitely a keeper. The calcium chloride worked as expected, making the
    pickles very crisp after a three week soak in the sealed jars. I am
    pleased with the results.

    Don't the radishes bleed out?

    Yes, that's the attraction, turns all the others a reddish pink. Used to
    buy the stuff when we lived in Saudi, pickled and jarred in Italy,
    absolutely delicious. The radishes also added a wee bit of heat without
    overcoming the taste of everything else.

    Hi George,
    I'll second that on the Pickle Crisp. I just opened another jar of the
    curried mixed pickles we made in September last year and they are
    beautifully crisp and tasty. I could sit and eat half a jar or more
    with just a slice or two of nice homemade whole wheat bread.
    I'm certainly happy that Bernardin decided to make PC available here
    in Canada last year and, a big thanks to you for inspiring me to get
    out and look for it.
    And, if you like curry flavour, I'm sure you'd like these pickles.

    Pickles

    16 cups mixed vegetables of your choice
    such as whole pickling onions,
    cucumber, swt. red & green pepper,
    cauliflower; cut up
    slices of carrot, etc.
    1/2 cup pickling salt
    1-1/2 gallons ice water
    3 cups white vinegar
    1-1/2 cups water
    4-1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1-1/2 tablespoons curry powder
    1-1/2 teaspoons fennel seed
    1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground coriander
    1-1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric
    horseradish root; thin slices
    ginger root; thin slices
    Pickle Crisp

    Combine the vegetables in a large glass, stainless steel or ceramic
    bowl.
    Sprinkle with the 1/2 cup pickling salt and cover with ice water. Let
    stand overnight in a cool place.
    Next morning, combine the vinegar, 1-1/2 cups water, sugar and spices
    in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
    Meanwhile, drain the vegetables. Place 1 slice each of ginger and
    horseradish root plus appropriate amount of Pickle Crisp in each of 7
    clean, hot, pint jars. Pack with drained vegetables. Cover with hot
    syrup, leaving 1/4" headspace. Affix lids and rings. Process in a

    I don't even bother for home and kin consumption, just use a magic
    marker on the lid. Works for us most of the time. If gifting to
    outsiders I will print out and stick a label on them or if we take some
    to the Farmer's Market to sell. A simple pint jar of jelly, jam, or
    pickled whatever will bring $5.00 to $7.00 there. As far as I'm
    concerned I would rather give them away as I don't think seven bucks
    would even cover our labor on them, even if we do love what we're doing.
