    Pickled Brussels Sprouts

    - blanch Brussels sprouts
    - dip into cold water to stop the cooking

    Brine:
    2 1/2 cups cider vinegar
    2 1/2 cups water
    4 tbsp canning salt
    -bring to a boil and simmer 10 mins

    Take Brussels and fill jars, then add 1 clove garlic, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp dill, 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes to each jar (pint size) - fill jars to 1/2 inch head space.

    Process in water bath for 15 mins.

    ** I personally add a HEAPING 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and red pepper flakes to each jar.

    These too me are like a gourmet green olive with my cold beer!!

    Enjoy!!!

    Hmmm Very interesting!

    Do you slice them in half to make them bite sized or leave them whole?

    I have always grown them in our garden and picked them about bite size to can them.

    I have to try that.. I usually do okra, green beans, or regular old pickles. I've even used English Cukes and they were really good. I also get those Chilie Arbol and stick one of those dried monsters in each jar. They don't come out too spicy, but just enough.. [​IMG]

    That sounds like a great idea. I sort of like them but only if they are cooked correctly. I do love my dills so this sounds like a good blend
