Simple Pickling Brine

Table of Contents

Servings: 2 pint canning jars


1 cup white vinegar

1 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon pickling salt


Add all the ingredients to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir until the salt and sugar dissolves. Pour the brine into the jar, covering the vegetables fully and leaving a 1/2 inch of room at the top. Seal the jar immediately and place it in the fridge. Let it sit for at least a day before opening. Pickles can keep for up to a month.
