Quickly Made Mixed Pickled Vegetables

For this pickled vegetable mix we always start by cutting all of them in the same sized sticks, but you can choose whatever size and even keep some of them whole.

The selection depends on what’s in season or your choices and can vary from carrot, cauliflower, cucumber, peppers, onion pearls, cabbage, radishes, and much more.


Pickling is perfect to reduce food waste and prepare and enables an overflow of seasonal products to be preserved for later use.

Vinegar is a preservative, and the choice of vinegar will determine the flavour and colouring. The most important point to remember when choosing vinegar is that it must contain a minimum of 5% acetic acid. 

Our preference is apple cider vinegar as it has a light yellow colour and a milder fruity flavour. We add spices and herbs to personalise our pickles.
