You’re not going to believe how easy it is to make pickled veggies. I know. It seems impossible because grandma always spent 23 hours canning beets. Poor grandma. It won’t take you that long. All you will need is about 30 minutes and 6 simple ingredients.

How Do You Make Quick Pickled Vegetables

You can use whatever veggies you prefer. But, my favorite is red onion, carrots, and radishes. The combination of flavors is so good and they go with just about anything.

It’s easy! First, chop your veggies.

Place the chopped vegetables in individual 8-ounce jars. You can combine them all in one larger container, but I like to keep them separate.

Mix the pickling liquid and fill each jar to the top. Screw the lid on tight and let your veggies pickle in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. But, the longer you let them marinate the better.

You can store these quick pickled veggies in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

    Made 1 jar with red peppers, shallots & carrots and another jar with Hatch chilies.
    The Hatch chillies take the prize! They’re so, so good! I had them with your refried bean recipe. Both are winners in my book.
    Thanks for yet another incredible recipe.

    Is the salt an essential ingredient? As a person with hypertensive tendencies, I’m always watching my salt intake. Can it be reduced or is there a substitute? Also – would this work with cabbage for sauerkraut? Thanks.

      For a brine it usually is but you can reduce or eliminate it completely and the vinegar will still do it’s work. Vinegar is the most important.

    I am a Diabetic. Can I leave out the sugar or would it be too bitter?

    • Quick Pickled Vegetables (Easy Pickling Recipe) - Shane & Simple (34)Shane Martin

      Hey, Todd. Really it depends on your taste. But, it might be a little harsh. FYI, I did cut way back on the sweetener compared to other pickling recipes. But, I maybe do 1/3 of the recipe and see how it taste. You could also try Xylitol or another natural sweetener. Hope this helps and good luck!

            Hey Shane. Just signed up and trying to decide what to try first. Want to do pickled veggies. Question. My grandma did pickling especially cucumbers and watermelon rinds (my favorite). Her pickled containers kept in basem*nt cupboard for months. Gave them as gift baskets during holidays. With only two of us at home would be nice if lasted more than two weeks. Thanks. And very excited about what is to come.

            Jay, welcome and thanks so much. We have kept these in our fridge much longer than 2 weeks. I’m just not allowed to say “indefinitley” 🙂 Hope you enjoy them.
