This is a great beginner canning recipe. It can be made as spicy as you like with more or less jalpeño and crushed red pepper flakes.



Ingredients

Directions

Chop veggies into bite-size slices or chunks; combine and set aside. Bring vinegar, water, sugar, salt and spices to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat to a simmer and add vegetables; simmer until vegetables are just tender, about 5 min. Use a slotted spoon to pack hot vegetables into 6 sterilized, hot pint jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Ladle hot liquid over vegetables to cover them, making sure to leave ½-inch headspace. You may need to use a spoon to scoop out any spices that sank to the bottom of the liquid mixture and divide the spices between the jars. Adjust two-piece jar caps and or process jars for 20 min. in a boiling-water canning bath. Let cool and use within 6 to 9 months. Refrigerate after opening. (Instead of preserving with water bath canning, let hot vegetables cool in jars then refrigerate and use within a few months.)

Serving Suggestions

Great with Italian beef or sausage sandwiches. Use as a side or topping for your favorite grilled meats. Or serve with an antipasto platter. If desired, toss Giardiniera mixture with olive oil just before serving.

Yields

6 pints

"I just wanted to say that I love your spices. I recently ordered and I recieved a free sample of your Barnegat Bay Butcher's Rub. After using this for my chicken, I had to go and order some. It made my chicken mouthwatering! Thank you again, it will be a staple in my spice cupboard."
