Kids Cook Along - Fridge Pickles
Wasted Kitchen Fridge Pickles
Fridge Pickle Liquor – enough for a jar or tub
75ml white wine/ cider vinegar
25g sugar (don’t worry you won’t be eating this, it helps preserve the veg and most of it stays in the liquor)
¼ tsp salt
Optional spices – use whole seed - cumin seed, chilli flakes, mustard seeds, coriander seed, juniper berries, caraway seed
Veg – carrot, onion, cabbage, beetroot, cauliflower, cucumber, green beans, peppers, turnips…
Heat liquid, add sugar and stir until it dissolves (don’t boil), add spices. While you let it cool chop or grate veg and pop into a sterilised jar or Tupperware (not metal) and pour vinegar and spices over.
Veggies ‘pickle’ really quickly so check after 1 – 3 days. Keep for a month in the fridge.
You can keep a tub of liquor in the fridge and just add veg as you’ve got it. Then get some out as you want it.
