Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine vinegar, water, and salt together in a pot; bring to a simmer.

  • Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Pack each jar 1/3 the cauliflower, 1 hot pepper, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 teaspoon mustard seed, 1 teaspoon peppercorns, 1 teaspoon coriander seed, 1 teaspoon dill seed, 1 teaspoon allspice berries, 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and 1 bay leaf. Pour vinegar mixture into the jars, filling to within 1/2-inch of the top. Run a knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.

  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large stockpot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars into the boiling water using a holder. Leave a 2-inch space between the jars. Pour in more boiling water if necessary to bring the water level to at least 1 inch above the tops of the jars. Bring the water to a rolling boil, cover the pot, and process for 10 minutes.

  • Remove the jars from the stockpot and place onto a cloth-covered or wood surface, several inches apart, until cool. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight (lid does not move up or down at all). Store in a cool, dark area.

I made this recipe with cauliflower carrots and sweet peppers. This taste great. I also halved the red pepper flakes ( I can t take the heat). The only change I would make is to cut the salt. Other than that it's a great recipe. I will make it again. Read More

I have made this twice now and those who have tried it love it! I personally have not tried because habaneros are too hot for me. I used habaneros instead of hot chili peppers because it is what I had. I also used a pickling spice blend as a sub for the allspice berries. I will be making this every time I can find nice cauliflower at a good price. Read More
