Kids Cook Along - Fridge Pickles

Wasted Kitchen Fridge Pickles



Fridge Pickle Liquor – enough for a jar or tub

100ml water

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.
