Pickled Brussels Sprouts

While you might not think of pickling Brussels sprouts, they make a delightful garnish for a Bloody Mary.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, halved or quartered (about 8 cups)
  • 6 tablespoons sliced shallot
  • 6 bay leaves
  • 3 cups distilled white vinegar, or cider vinegar
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Instructions

Step 1
Place a large bowl of ice water next to the stove. Bring a large pot of water to a boil in a large pot. Add half of the prepared Brussels sprouts, cover, return to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the sprouts to the ice water to cool. Repeat with the remaining sprouts.
Step 2
Drain the cooled sprouts and divide among 6 pint-size (2-cup) canning jars or similar-size tempered-glass or heatproof-plastic containers with lids. Add 1 tablespoon shallot and 1 bay leaf to each jar.
Step 3
Combine vinegar, 3 cups water, salt and sugar in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until the salt and sugar dissolve. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Step 4
Carefully fill jars (or containers) with the brine to within 1/2 inch of the rim, covering the Brussels sprouts completely. (Discard any leftover brine.)
Step 5
Place the lids on the jars (or containers). Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
