How to make pickled crudités for a crudités platter.

Prepare to be amazed at how easy it is to transform winter vegetables like carrots and radishes into flavor-packed accouterments for your favorite cheese board

Prep work!

Wash the glass jars you plan to use well. I run mine through the dishwasher to sanitize them before I even start to prep the vegetables.

Wash the vegetables well and slice all of the vegetables into shapes and sizes that are appropriate for your glass jars.

Get to packin’!

Cram all of those prepped winter vegetables into the jars as tightly as you can.

You want to fill up as much space as possible!

It’s brine time!

The pickling liquid is super simple to make and consists of equal parts white vinegar and hot water, with sugar and salt dissolved into it.

Time for a pickled pour over!

Pour the brine over the vegetables in the jars until they are covered and sealed tightly.

Allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then transfer to the refrigerator for another hour.

The pickled vegetables will last up to 10 days stored in the brine.
