Vegetables and other low-acid foods are normally processed in a pressure canner. Here, the high vinegar content is a preservative, allowing use of a boiling water canner. Count on this mix to adorn relish trays and team up with cheese and meat.

  • Portion size 500 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups pearl onions
  • 4 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pickling salt
  • 1 tablespoon celery seeds
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon peppercorns
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 lb green bean cut into 2-inch (5 cm) lengths
  • 2 zucchinis sliced
  • 3 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups thickly sliced carrots

Method

In saucepan of boiling water, blanch onions for 30 seconds. Immerse in cold water; drain and peel. Set aside.

In saucepan, bring vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seeds, mustard seeds, peppercorns and bay leaves to boil; boil for 5 minutes.

Add beans, zucchini, cauliflower, carrots and onions; return to boil. Remove from heat. Discard bay leaves.

Into 2-cup (500 mL) canning jars, tightly pack vegetables to within 3/4 inch (2 cm) of rim. Pour in vinegar mixture, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) headspace.
