My kids-4yo twins, love this pickle so much. It was the way I go them to eat
cauliflower for the first time.
Cauliflower & Green Pepper Relish
2 lbs cauliflower, cut up into small florets 1/4 cup sugar ( I use fructose)
2 green peppers, sliced 1-1/2 tsp salt
1 cup rice vinegar salt for soaking & pressing
Separate sauliflower into florets and soak in cold salted water for 30
minutes. Slice peppers into thin strips. Bring pan of water to boil and dip
cauliflower and peppers into the boiling water. Remove after 2 or 3 seconds
and drain well.
Put into a glass or earthenware bowl and sprinkle with salt. Mix well.
Mix together the vinegar, salt, and sugar in a small pan and bring to a
boil. Stir until dissolved. Cool slightly.Pour over cauliflower and peppers
and mix well. Put a plate or heavy lid on top of the vegetables, pressing
down with a 2 lb weight and let stand over night. do not wash before serving.
This will keep up to a month in the vinegared juice.
We usually make a double recipe. Yummy!
I like this recipe so much I had a potter make a special large pot for me
with a heavy lid.
