  Counter Pickles

         Pickling Vegetables (Continued)

With the side of the knife swat the garlic clove slightly.This releases the flavor and loosens the skin so you can peel it easy

Add the fresh vegetables, dill , corriander, or the spices of your choice
Add 1/2 cup distilled vinegar and enough water to cover, and place a plate slightly less diameter in the bowl to weight the pickles down.
Place some kind of a weight on the plate. I have used a glass measuring cup with water in it.
Now you can test the pickles in a few hours for flavor, and daily until they become "pickly" enough for you. Place in a glass jar and store in the refrigerator.
They will keep at least 6 months.
