    Have any of you made pickled veggies? We do beets, cauliflower, cucumbers, baby green beans, and this year tried a couple quarts of sweet corn.
    Would like to hear what you have done!

    Welcome aboard! I quit making canned pickles a couple years ago, I just got tired of sterilizing jars and working over the boiling water bath. Plus, I just never have spare time during the veggie season (I'm a produce grower for my primary income). We make sauerkraut and other brined pickles though. I love making them. Some salt, garlic, dill and peppercorns and you're ready to roll. I made a 10 gallon crock of cucumber pickles in about an hour this summer. Still eating them. They're super crunchy.

    I've pickled red beets many years. They always turn out great.

    Last year I pickled okra. The first batch was not the best though. We canned it with a pressure cooker instead of the water bath. What this did was cook the okra too long. Soggy, and a little slimy, but still edible.
    The second batch (about 2 weeks later), we used the water bath. The final result is the crunchy okra, and no slime, as intended.

    I've never thought of pickling green beans...

    For pickling green beans, we pick the smaller diameter ones, ( never tried the regular size). We make a few pints of them each year. We also do kraut and a few dills.
    The pickled veggies are a change of pace kinda thing!---something different during the winter. thanks; sonny580

    I'd like to do some pickled cucumbers. Baby ones.
    My wife won't eat any other pickled veggies, She may eat canned though.
    I love beets, beans, cauliflower, baby white onions and sweet peppers as well as cucumbers.

    If your wife tasted ours, I think she would like them.---Your home processed veggies are way different than the store stuff.--We tried a couple quarts of pickled sweet corn, and it is ok, (different!).--Just experiment different veggies and see what you think.--Thats what we do! thanks; sonny580
