This week's Independent's column the dish is all about canning: Pickles, co-munching and the USDA. In it, Ari LeVaux gives some insider info--tips and tricks--about canning as well as the USDA guidelines.

Some highlights include:
Slicing carrots and peppers into rounds about a half inch thick.
Jalapenos are the ultimate pepper to use for pickling.
Add a teaspoon of salt and a tablespoon each of yellow and brown mustards seeds to the bottom of each quart jar.
To make Mexican-style peppers and carrots (escabeche) add a tablespoon or sprig or two of oregano.
Use a brine of 50/50 vinegar and water, with the vinegar equal parts cider and white wine vinegar.
Undercook and under-vinegar the vegetables as long as you know to never eat from a jar that has lost its seal or whose lid does not display the telltale concavity that indicates a vacuum.

What are some other people's secrets to great pickled veggies?

Does anyone have some recipes to share?
Screaming fools! It's nothing more than a tiny ad:
