Red mixed pickle


Red mixed pickle
This mixed pickle is made with a variety of vegetables left to mature for 2 weeks in diluted vinegar.

The result is similar to gherkins and can be added to lots of recipes, or eaten with a snack or sandwich.
This red version gets its name from beetroot and red cabbage, which eventually colour everything else in the jar.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 10 min.

Prepare your chosen vegetables: peel, rinse, dry and cut into julienne.

For the radish, I've opted for the black variety, easier to cut into sticks.

Stage 2 - 2 min.

Put the beetroot julienne into a bowl, add a little fine salt and mix.

Leave at room temperature.

Top up with the vinegar mix. The vegetables must be completely covered. Then seal the lid.

Leave to stand for 2 weeks.

Stage 11

Your red mixed pickle is ready. The amazing purple-pink colour it started out with will gradually mellow to a duller brick red, but this will not affect the flavour.

Remarks

The recipe is very flexible, so you can adapt it to your taste: the choice of vegetables, their size, the proportion of vinegar to water, etc. Let your imagination get to work with whatever you have to hand.

Keeping:

Months in a dark place.
