Lay pickling vegetables in a pyrex dish or bowl so veggies are flat for marinading in the brine. Massage vegetables with a gloved hand. Within 30 minutes or up to several hours transfer the marinated vegetables into a mason jar and refrigerate. They will keep in the fridge from 2 to 4 weeks. The longer they are kept the softer the pickles become. If you prefer them crunchy use within one week.
Multiple Veggie Ideas for Jars:
Thinly sliced jalapeño peppers with seeds thinly sliced
Persian or Kirby cucumbers / round coins or mandolin cut
Korean radish / squares or long sticks
Carrots / coins or long sticks
Red onions thinly sliced or chunky squares
Combine multiple favorites into one jar
Serve pickles with Korean Baked Sweet Potatoes for a perfect summer treat! Always use a clean fork or chopstick to preserve the brine. Left over brine can be stored in the refrigerator and used again for more pickling. The brine can be stored for the next several months.
