I’ve been meaning to make this pickled vegetables recipe for a long time and finally had the time during this non -ending quarantine.
My mother first made these pickled vegetables for us while we were still living in Colombia. I remember being fascinated by how beautiful the bright colored vegetables looked inside the jar. Encurtido, as it’s known in Colombia; it’s traditionally made with string beans, carrots and cauliflower.
Pickled vegetables have been scientifically proven to provide probiotics – live microorganisms that aid in digestion.These bacteria are not only good for your immune system, but also help to prevent inflammation.
Vegetables | Pick vegetables that are fresh and free of blemishes
Vinegar | white vinegar is the one traditionally used since it does not alter the taste or appearance of the vegetables
Herbs and Spices | This is where you can get creative. Add whole garlic cloves or pickling spices if you prefer. Some people like to add dill or a combination of spices and herbs.
Buen Provecho !!
