Mixed Pickled Veggies (no canning necessary)

Recipe By : Dawn
Serving Size : 3 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Dawn's Recipe Pickles & Relishes

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Any combination of the following veggies:
cauliflower -- cut into pieces
baby carrots
asparagus -- chunked
baby bell peppers -- sliced
sweet onion -- sliced
green beans -- cut in 1" pieces
12 cloves garlic, peeled -- and sliced thickly
baby corn -- cut in 1" pieces
Spices per quart jar:
1 1/2 tablespoons mustard seed
1 1/2 tablespoons dill seed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes -- optional
4 cups water
4 cups white vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons plain salt -- (no iodine)

I made these a few days ago, and they were easy and turned out very good. I washed my jars and lids in hot soapy water.
In each quart jar, I layered the vegetables in attractive color combinations. I repeated the layering a couple times, pressing down the veggies as I went. Ending with garlic.
I brought the brine to a boil, and put the spices in each jar. Using a funnel, I poured the brine over the veggies, filling to the very top. I waited a little bit, topping the jars as needed. The veggies and spices will absorb some of the brine, so I add until it stays filled almost to the top. Then I capped them, and let them sit on the counter overnight. They sealed themselves, but I keep them in the refrigerator. These will get better with age.
Enough to make 3 quart jars.
