Refrigerator Pickles: Cauliflower, Carrots, Cukes, You Name It

Ingredients

For the brine:
10 cloves garlic, peeled
2 cups white vinegar
6 teaspoons kosher salt
Several sprigs of fresh dill
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 teaspoon coriander seed
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon pink peppercorns (if you have 'em)

For the vegetables:
6 Kirby cucumbers, quartered lengthwise
6 young spring carrots, peeled and cut in half lengthwise
1 handful large scallion pieces or green beans
A few pieces of cauliflower to tuck wherever they'll fit
4 small hot red chiles or 2 jalapenos

In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil, reduce the heat so the water simmers and add the garlic. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and salt, raise the heat and bring to a boil, stirring until the salt dissolves. Remove from the heat.

In 2 clear 1-quart jars, place a few sprigs of dill. Divide the seeds and peppercorns between the jars. Using tongs, remove the garlic from the brine and place 5 cloves in each jar. Then pack the jars full of cucumbers, carrots, scallions or green beans, cauliflower and chiles. You want them to be tightly stuffed.

Bring the brine back to a boil, pour it over the vegetables to cover completely, let cool, then cover and refrigerate. The pickles will taste good in just a few hours, better after a couple of days. And they'll keep for about 3 months.

I’ve never actually learned pickling, despite having a lot of resources at my disposal. I just enjoy the heck out of some pickled things. My grandmother is second generation Czech-American and always has cans of something from the farm ready for me to take home when I visit. Quail eggs, turnips, radishes...

I’ve eve tried pickled watermelon rind before and let me tell you...they’re great.

mmmm quail eggs

i chose the name of this thread because i like pickles, and want to pickle things. and i don't know how to pickle them and when i do, it will likely make me have nausea. but i will get back on the bicycle and ride again. until i have achieved my ultimate goal: successfully pickling a sea gull

Went to a BBQ spot today and was thrilled to find an above-average pickled veggie selection where you'd normally just find the obligatory pickles and onions. Never had pickled green onions before but now it seems like a no-brainer.

so after a week, do you have to drain them and put them in a different container or can you just let them soak in the juices for like a month or something?

You always want to keep them in the juices, both for preservation and flavor.
