Refrigerator Pickles

We used the carrots and jalapeno peppers from our garden and some cauliflower and beans from our local farmers' market to make refrigerator pickles!

For the beans and cauliflower florets, I used a really simple recipe that is equal parts of white vinegar and water, a smashed clove of garlic, and a dash of salt, sugar, and black pepper (I also used a couple of pink peppercorns with the cauliflower). Boil the brine, pour over veggies, let cool, and refrigerate!

For 2 qts of mixed veggies pickles, I made the brine with 8 cloves of smashed garlic, 2 cups white vinegar, 4 cups water, 5 tsp salt, 2 tsp sugar, and 2 tsp of pickling spices.
