Can I preserve veggies in fridge without salt and sugar?

Hi im wondering if i can preserve some sliced jalapenos/cucumbers in the fridge without salt and sugar, can i just put them in a jar of vinegar? Almost like pickles but without the salt. How long will they last in the vinegar solution? Im trying to cut back on the salt/sugar i take in.

Thanks :)

Food Preservation Without Sugar or Salt

It doesn't appear you can completely not use salt and sugar, but, you can reduce it. You can consume it in moderate quantities. Hope that helps.

Yes, it can be done!
This recipe should help! :) They come out quite tasty!!


White Vinegar
1 Cucumber, sliced
1 small sliced onion
1-2 diced garlic cloves


Put cucumbers, garlic and onion in a bowl.
Pour in vinegar and water until covering the cucumber. (at a 3:1 ratio between vinegar and water)
Allow to marinate over night before sampling!! :)
