ISO Hot Pickled Cauliflower.

Back in my younger days Mt. Olive put out a product called Hot Mixed. Amongst other things it had cauliflower in it (and was my favorite bit of the whole thing).

Does anyone have a TNT recipe for hot pickled cauliflower that might be close to the Hot Mixed?

Thanks.

My parents used to make gallons of assorted veggie pickles. Carrots, green tomato green pepper and cauliflower. We'd make 15-20 gallons a season. They weren't hot but adding a couple of chilies shouldn't be an issue.

Let me know if you want the recipe. It'll take some digging so you wouldn't have it today.

Andy,

Thanks, I would love to see the recipe. And yes, I see the irony of you being the first to respond to this.

My sister and I used to fight over the cauliflower as it was our favorite pickle. No doubt due to the texture as the veggies lose there fresh flavor when pickled. No SO and my daughters also reach for the cauli first though I haven't made pickles in a few years.

I'll look for the recipe tomorrow.

I've seen a hot mixed vegetable in the pickle section at Walmart lately.

What I've done before is save the liquid in the jar and add some of the same vegetables. Okra pods are particularly good this way. They take on the flavor of the original within a couple of weeks.

I thought about trying this again when I saw it. I'll pick up some next trip and let you know the brand if it's good.

Frank, Summer in a Jar has several cauli recipes, maybe add some pepper flakes or other stuff?

Hey Frank, what I do to spice up the pickle mixes from the store is pickle my own peppers, (very hot), for about a month, then use that vinegar to add to the store bought jar of veggies.

Then I let it set for a couple of weeks. Works every time!
