#HandcraftedEdibles2015: Refrigerated Pickled Brussels Sprouts

I love these pickles so much!  They are good by themselves, but they are extra special used as a garnish for bloody marys!  So unique and they pack a nice punch, too!

2 lbs Brussels Sprouts
5 whole cloves of peeled garlic
red pepper flakes
5 c water
5 c white vinegar
pickling salt

Soak the vegetables in salt water for 10 minutes.

Divide brussels sprouts between clean and dry jars.  Put in one clove of garlic and 1/3 t red pepper flakes per jar.

Boil vinegar, water and 1 T pickling salt.  Pour into jars, within 1/4 inch from the top.  Remove extra air.  Seal with lids and rings.  Store in the refrigerator up to 30 days.  Let sit at least 24 hours before eating.
