Giardinera quick pickled veggies?

Does anyone have a recipe for the brine for this?

Some say lots of vinegar, others say oil?

The kind I buy at grocery are very mild pickled veggis but quite expensive..

I'm looking for just 2 week fridge pickled I think.

Thanks, Eric Austin Tx.

I thought about making this last summer but never got around to it. To start I'd try the recipe in the Blue Ball Canning Book.

Italian-style giardiniera has oil and vinegar; Chicago-style has just oil. Then you can make it hot, with hot peppers, or mild, without them. So it depends on which style you want. What kind are you looking for?

I'm accustomed to giardiniera being in a vinegar brine with no oil at all.

The stuff I get is vinegar brine too. It makes a wicked pot roast in the CP.

The question intrigued me so did a web search and there are lots of recipes. I'll make batch next week. The hot one sounds interesting.

I use this recipe Homemade Hot Giardiniera Recipe | Jeff Mauro | Food Network to make giardinera for the olive salad to go in muffalettas. Craig likes the giardiniera as is. I'm just not that fond of giardiniera or the spice in it.

You make a pot roast with giardinara vegetables and the brine in a crock pot? I guess I've never heard of that or tried it. That would be something new around here. Anymore details?

Of course I can't find it now. I made it a couple years ago, it was really good. Basically a roast and a jar of giardinara in a CP. That's about it. I'll try and find the recipe. I do recall being very pleased to find a big jar of the giardinara at one of our local stores.

I used to make a giardinara, and I had a bunch for years in the pantry. It was just vinegar and salt and sugar and no oil. I never thought to cook it with a pot roast. Now I will. Thank you so much for mentioning it. I never would have thought of it. I wonder what Dh will think of it. I'm excited to give it a try.
