Pickled Turnips & Beets

🍠 Pickled Turnips & Beets 🍠

My most favorite of all pickled vegetables. The perfect side to my falafel, shawarma and chicken kebab sandwiches.

My recipe is very simple and takes less than half an hour to put together.
You will need:
🍠 2 pounds (about 6 cups) medium sized turnips and 1 medium peeled beet, washed very well and sliced into 1/2 inch thick strips; I used a zigzag cutter to slice them.
I do not peel the turnips.
🍠 6 garlic cloves, sliced.
🍠 For the Brine:
6 cups boiled water, 6 tablespoons coarse salt, 1 cup vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar.
🍠 Dissolve salt and sugar in the hot water, stir vinegar in and set brine aside until it completely cools off
🍠 Transfer the sliced turnips, beets and garlic to a jar with a tight fitting lid, then pour the brine over. I put a plastic lid inside the jar to ensure that the veggies stay submerged in the liquid and don’t float to the surface. Cover with plastic wrap, then secure the lid tightly.
And Voila!

The pickled turnips will be ready for you to enjoy after about 5 days πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
