Pickled Cauliflower and Carrots

Do you know someone that loves pickles in your family? 

Both my boys love pickled cucumbers, so I came up with a new pickled vegetable recipe, pickled cauliflower and carrots.  It's based on the Italian recipe for Giardiniera, meaning "from the garden." 

I think you will love this twist on traditional pickles!

Pickled Cauliflower and Carrots

1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cloves garlic, smashed
3 bay leaves
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 small head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1 carrot, sliced thinly

Combine the vinegar, water, salt and sugar in a microwave safe pyrex or other container.  Heat on high for 1-2 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved.  Stir well.

Add the garlic, bay leaves and red pepper flakes.  Stir again.

In a large bowl or jar, add the cauliflower and carrots, (or by all means, add other veggies as well--we like mild peppers too) and pour the marinade over the veggies.

Refrigerate for 24 hours.  Use as needed, lasts for up to 4 weeks in your refrigerator.
Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
