Making homemade pickles is easier than you think!
Did you know that it’s super easy to prepare your own pickles at home? There are many ways to do so but if you’re looking for simple and effortless steps try these tips and tricks to have your pickles ready to be stored in no time.
Choose the best vegetables
When shopping for vegetables, make sure they are ripe yet firm but not wrinkly or limp. Wash them well before you start and cut off the bruises and bumps. They should be crunchy and not soft and mushy.
Whole or sliced?
This really depends on your preference. You can choose to pickle whole cucumbers or slice them in a food processor. You can slice carrots or shred them in Double Force food processor… the options are endless!
What’s the best brine?
The vinegar based brine is commonly used to prepare pickles. For each cup of vinegar, use 1 cup of water. You can make more or less brine to suit the quantity of pickles you want to make.
How long to store the pickles?
You can process vegetables in hot water for 5 minutes then pickle them; this could make them storable for up to a year. If you’re looking for a crunchy result, you can directly refrigerate the pickles for few weeks; either way they should be ready to be consumed within 5 days or one week.
