Processing the Food Item Number: processingfood1Salting
Some pickling recipes will require salting to remove excess moisture and allow the vinegar to effectively preserve the food. Once the salting process is complete, rinse food thoroughly to remove all salt and blot dry with a paper towel.
Pack the prepared vegetables loosely into sterilized containers. Cover with vinegar and tap sides to release air bubbles. If necessary, use crumpled grease-proof paper to push food down under the liquid. This can be removed after 2 weeks. Tightly seal lids.
