Elvia’s Mexican Pickled Vegetables

May/June 2010

Your rating: None Average: 2.8 (28 votes)

These spicy pickled vegetables are like a Mexican version of Italian giardiniera and are delicious with tacos and as a condiment for any sandwich or burger. The recipe makes a large batch but it keeps well in the refrigerator. Packed into glass jars, it makes a nice gift.

Great pickled vegetables with a lot of spicy flavor.

I have made these pickled vegetables several times. When I make them, I make a very large batch and can them. I make a pickling salt brine, add a 1/4 teaspoon or so of each spice to the jars along with the garlic. I put a small splash of olive oil in each jar and then pack in the vegetables. I also include wedges of onion. Pour the brine in then seal and process in a boiling water bath for 20 minutes.

Much better than store bought,

The flaw is cooking veggies in oil

Instead of cooking veggies in oil, parboil them then pour the heated oil over them.

A Good Recipe!

Although a bit labor intensive, I do like this recipe. The taste of the final project is unique and delicious! I do agree that it was a bit too oily, and would probably be better with 1/2 the amount. I also found the vinegar flavor a bit too strong, and ended adding a few cups of water to mine as well. Overall a great dish !

I really enjoy the taste of these vegetables, it is unique and delicious
