We do a lot of pickling during the summer season but to make your pickled veggies really good you need to get them fresh, picked in the past few days if possible and pickle them right away. Frozen veggies would not work in my opinion. In fact when we buy our okra from the farmers market today I will pickle a few jars tomorrow.

I thought this was going to be my chance to proclaim the superiority of pickled okra.

We're making sauerkraut right now in a crock that's in a Styrofoam cooler with blue ice blocks. It's fun and easy and ends up crunchy with genuine fermentation and all those health benefits. There is no sauerkraut here. Nor horseradish, which I am trying to grow on my condo balcony, along with pickling cucumbers (no pickles, either). We had to haul canning jars from the U.S., LOL.

It's a fun and fascinating hobby, OP. Get those fresh veggies and go for it. If you don't have a cool place to age them, use our technique above. Put a thermometer in the cooler.

I roast and skin our garden peppers, then pickle them in very small batches (a pint or so). No crunch to speak of, but they are gooooood.

I don't have a place to pickle nor have i ever done it. I just thought of the little corn ,chestnuts and cauliflower etc and how expensive it is to buy pickled; then i saw them in the grocery in the Stir Fry bag and just wondered.
