Crunchy Mason Jar Pickled Veggies: A Tangy Delight!

Preserving veggies in mason jars is a time-honored tradition, perfect for savoring the flavors of the season year-round. Today, we're diving into a simple pickling recipe that will transform your fresh veggies into tangy, crunchy delights.


  • Assorted vegetables (e.g., cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers, cauliflower, green beans)
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons pickling salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
  • Fresh dill, to taste
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional for a kick!)


  1. Prepare the Veggies: Clean and cut your chosen veggies into preferred sizes, ensuring they'll fit comfortably in your mason jars.

  2. Boil the Brine: In a pot, combine vinegar, water, pickling salt, and sugar (if using). Bring the mixture to a boil, ensuring the salt and sugar dissolve completely. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.

  3. Layer the Flavors: In each mason jar, add a sprig of dill, a crushed garlic clove, mustard seeds, and red pepper flakes.

  4. Pack the Jars: Tightly pack your prepped veggies into the mason jars, leaving about a 1/2 inch of space at the top.

  5. Pour the Brine: Carefully pour the warm brine into each jar, ensuring the vegetables are fully submerged. Leave another 1/2 inch of headspace at the top.

  6. Seal & Store: Wipe the rim of the jars clean, then securely place and tighten the lids. Let the jars cool to room temperature before storing them in the refrigerator.

  7. Patience is Key: For the best flavor, let the veggies pickle for at least 48 hours before enjoying them. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.


  • For added flavor, consider adding other herbs or spices like coriander seeds, peppercorns, or bay leaves.
  • Remember, these are refrigerator pickles and should be stored in the fridge, not on the shelf.

There you have it – a delightful mason jar pickled veggie recipe that's both refreshing and incredibly easy to make. Enjoy the satisfying crunch and tangy taste with every bite!
