BRUSSEL SPROUTS PICKLE


Brussel sprouts have a resemblance of tiny

cabbages in appearance and are highly 

protein rich,and packed with nutrients.It

is an excellent source of Vitamin C,K,A,and 

also good for eye related diseases.

Brussel sprouts is incredibly nutritious 

good for anaemic,heart,patients.

Safety note:When I searched the pointers on health benefits I noted that it is not too safe for patients with thyroid dysfunction,as the goitrogens which may contain in this vegetable,will be a factor to induce swelling

Well,in fact this brussel sprout is not much 

welcome in my home,so I thought I should 

try pickling it.This way it will,surely be 

relished.I looked into an old recipe book

with many pickles especially red cabbage.

It was there I extracted the idea from and 

made my inclusions too.

So here’s the recipe now..

INGREDIENTS

150-200 gm brussel sprouts

1/4 cup peeled garlic

10 green chillies slit

1 tblsp or more red chilli powder (depending on your taste)

1/2 tsp turmeric

Enough rock salt for marination

Half bottle vinegar 

1 tblsp peppercorns

Salt to taste

METHOD

Clean the sprouts by removing discolored 

leaves.Wash,dry on cloth and mix with 

enough rock salt and turmeric.Cover and 

set aside for 24 hours.

Next day squeeze out the former juice and 

arrange in a sterilised glass bottle.

Heat the vinegar preferably in a clay 

pot,with peppercorns.When it reaches a 

boiling point,switch off and add the green 

chillies,red chilli powder and garlic to the 

brine.Leave closed for 5 minutes.Check for 

salt taste and adjust to your taste .Pour 

vinegar whilst hot into the bottle and add 

the chillies and garlic.Press the veggies to 

the bottom and if the vinegar level is less 

than the level of veggies,you could heat 

some more vinegar,and pour.Use after 3-4 

days.Do not forgot to shake the bottle once 

a day.

You could use these pickles in sandwiches wraps,and salads too.
