Ingredients for the brine:

  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 1 1/4 cups cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 bay leaf

INSTRUCTIONS: 
1. Pack your vegetable of choice tightly in a 1-quart glass jar, leaving about 1/2 inch of room at the top. Set aside.

2. Make the brine: Toast the mustard seeds and peppercorns in a small saucepan over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Bring to a boil.

3. Immediately pour the brine into the jar, making sure to cover the vegetables completely. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Seal the jar with a tight fitting lid and shake or rotate it to evenly distribute the brine and spices. Store in the refrigerator for at least 1 day and preferably 1 week before using. The pickles can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
