After god knows how long of talking about it. I'm making pickled Turnips.

Picked up a few that were nice and solid.

Peeled and trimmed. The smell is tempting me to grab a salt shaker. And start munching.

Rinsed off. Enough to fill 3 pint jars nicely.

Capped and vacuumed.
Recipe:
In a non-reactive pot add:
3 pints cider vinegar.
3 tsp Dill seeds.
2 Tbs pickling salt
2 tsp mustard seed.
Fill each jar to 1/2" of top and seal. Never done these before. So, I'm winging how long the need to sit. After they have cooled they will go in the fridge.

This method is not considered shelf stable because they are not actually pasteurized under heat long enough to become shelf stable.

Looks like a good start, Steve!

I don’t vacuum seal mine but after 2-3 days I start eating them and have a pretty good idea how they’ll taste. As long as you like your brine you should be good to go.

Since you vacuum sealed them, I have no idea as to how quickly they are done. That speeds up the process right?

It speeds up the process tremendously. Where it takes a month for pickles. By vacuum sealing the jar. It only takes 3-5 days. So, I may want to try these in a couple of days then.

Eat one now!! Lol.

But yeah after 2-3 days of a normal refrigerator pickle, I start eating them.

I have a jar attachment for my vac seal laying around somewhere (it was my grandfathers)...I just need the hose/tubing. I’m pretty sure I could get that at Lowe’s. I gotta try this.

Taste time. I really, really like em. Though I wouldn't use them like pickles. I think. They are great for snacking. They didn't stay as crisp as I thought they would have been. Even with the pickle crisp. Still had a crunch though.

Looks good Steve! I definitely snack on them hard. A jar doesn’t usually last much over 3 weeks since I’ll eat a few at a time.

They soften somewhat over time, but definitely not mushy. I make them as a quick refrigerator pickle. I’ve never vacuum sealed them so I don’t know the effects of that...you’re in uncharted waters friend.

Like!!

I'm wondering that as well. My next batch won't get vacuumed. Thanks.
