You can, of course, buy picked veggies in jars from good delis and supermarkets. But take a look at the ingredients. They are often pickled in ordinary vinegar. Given the known benefits of unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar, it seems a shame to not pickle your own using this fantastic ingredient. You only have to google “benefits of apple cider vinegar” to know what I mean.
Once you make a jar, close it tightly and keep in the fridge. I found myself using it to accompany all sorts of meals – from a simple Indian dinner to salads, adding it to my lunch as a side to eggs, w
ith grilled meats and fish…….the uses are endless.
I am on to my third batch. Not wanting to waste the pickling liquid, when the first batch of veggies was over, I just strained, re-boiled and reused the pickling liquid a second time. By the third time though, the flavour has gone. So I recommend re-using it only once. Make a jar and you will be a convert. I now have a permanent space in the fridge for it.
