Hello , welcome to my channel .
Today , we're gonna make some lovely mixed veg pickle .
We are gonna make a small portion of it .
We got gone those days when we had big families and we used to make it by five liter bucket and for weddings , we used to prepare 25 liter buckets of mixed veg .
So today I have a cabbage .
It was a small cabbage .
I cut a quarter of it and sliced it and I got it also rinsed out and then it was a small cauliflower that I cut quarter of that and get cleaned up .
They have flowers and also cottage rinsed and then I got uh three carrots and this is how we cut it for our uh veg pickle .
And then I have uh almost 200 g of uh green beans that I broke and rinsed out .
And then I have a little handful of uh green chilies that I actually uh gave it a strip in the center and rinsed it out .
And thereafter , I'm also gonna add some uh board to eat and some figs , this board will actually be picked out .
And tomorrow I will sit and show exactly what I do .
And , but , and I will fix that .
I will have to work with him because they have a lot of sand and cleaning up the , uh , uh , fix is sort of , you see the sand actually grips in this flower and then we had to clean it up properly .
And tomorrow I will uh soak it in the water and give it to several Rs and then I will show you exactly what I do with it .
And then I have almost 1.5 liter of vinegar .
Uh You can use different types of vinegar , but the white one that keeps the color in .
I've got a container which has a ceiling lid because it's going to stay overnight .
And after every two hours , I'm gonna stir it in .
By tomorrow morning , the entire veg will collapse to smaller sizes .
Firstly , I'll put in my uh cabbage or you can throw all one thing and you're not putting any salt or anything in it .
No , I'm not going to put any salt .
In fact , tomorrow I will show you all after when it's going to dry up a little .
Uh There's many types of pickle when we were growing up .
My mom should actually make fish prickles , this taste ready tasty .
And we used to steal that pickle in it , but we should get caught because our trop pickle smells so strong because we live near the beach .
We used to get a lot of .
So when the before ripening , while it's still green , we used to cut and actually make pickle with marla even with .
And the best pickle to make is jack fruit .
And uh there's a lot of pickles can be made .
So today , this is just our veg pickle , which is quite a small amount .
But would it be enough for the winter for my children's ?
Now , I'm gonna add in my vinegar .
I'm not gonna use much of a weenie yang for covering up the veg .
I will go halfway through .
So you can see the vinegar is not covering up my veg because after every two hours , I will keep stirring it till tomorrow , you will see how it collapsed in size .
So the vinegar dehydrates the vegetables , it pulls the water out .
And it keeps it for a longer period in your oil .
Welcome back .
Here's my vege table that I cut and soaked in vinegar yesterday , getting ready to make the vegetable pick up .
So today I'm gonna actually uh drain out this vine that I have and I actually want to use the same vine to steam out my gold and feet .
I'm gonna take my vegetables outside to dry out .
Uh It's not like a complete sun dry .
It's only to the vinegar to dry off and you need a tray and use newspaper and then I will , I'm putting my vegetables in and then I will cover my vegetable in the meantime , I want to use this vinegar to actually steam out my bore and fig .
As I showed you all , it took a lot of cleaning in the figs and I had it soaked in water for the morning and I rinsed it about six times because figs actually have a lot of sand .
And then I've been cleaning all this off because once when the flower is formed , it grips in a lot of sand .
And then this is the board that I rinsed out .
And I'm also going to steam with the vinegar .
Uh This is the vinegar that I used to , uh , soak my veggies yesterday , of which it was 1.5 liter .
And because I'm making , uh , the sweet and sour , I'm gonna actually add 75 ML to each pot .
In fact , you can , if you're only making your board of figs on its own , so you can use up and your new vinegar , but not to get rid or throw away so much of vinegar , we are putting it back in use for steaming us have boring face .
Yeah , these are 7 50 mil each for making your veg pickle if you're using bore and figs and for making a sweet and sour sauce , pickle , you had to use the same process , you had to steam out your board and fix .
Now , why I'm doing this separately ?
Because my board have seeds and my figs doesn't have seeds .
So the steaming will be differently .
Now , my uh figs and my bodies uh had a quick steam .
Uh you must be very careful , mustn't allow it to boil very much because the reason being it will get soft and then it will tear apart in a pickle .
So I will rinse out the vine , cut your wrist and then our old runs out , straight out was really get .
In fact , this vinegar can still come to use when you have , uh , you know , teaspoons or tablespoons that stained with T max .
So you can actually throw them in vinegar and it will come out the beautiful silver co color again .
I'm gonna just take a handful of , of bore and figs to actually dry with my veggies so I can add them to my vegetable pickup .
I think this will be enough .
Today is a nice sunny day in Joburg and , uh , this is where the sun is shining mostly .
So I'm gonna put my veggies to dry out here and later in the afternoon , I'm gonna show y'all how I put my pickle and while we had to eat , uh , you can see my tomatoes actually growing like grapes , tomato became scarce and we had plentiful .
And my veggies are dry enough for the pickle .
Uh , in fact , it was about four hours in the sun , but as you know , Joburg sun is not very hot , it's not about drying the veggies completely .
Hey , it must still stay a little moist .
It's just about drying off the excess of the vinegar and for my ingredients , for the mixed veggies , I've uh sliced eight cloves of garlic .
Garlic must be needed a little extra .
A tablespoon of uh mixed uh pickle masala , a tablespoon of pure chili powder , a teaspoon of sugar , a tablespoon of salt because I took note that my pickle masala actually has salt in it .
And so I'm going to go directly to the container , which I'm going to store it in .
So it will not be many dishes being getting used up .
And then we are going to use oil to top it .
But because I'm gonna keep my pickle in the fridge , uh I'm gonna use a little less oil .
But if you like your extra oil in your pickle , then you have to actually allow it to cook in the sunshine .
But in the meantime , while my pickles stay in the fridge , I will always give it a stir maybe for about two or three days before eating the first call in all my mixed veggies .
And you can use uh masala according to your taste because we don't like uh very hot chili's masala and realizing we also got some green cheese in our pickup .
So it's gonna be very hot for us .
That's the reason why I'm using one tablespoon of and , and then it then goes garlic and this is the fix on the board .
The thing is in those years when our parents were still living , they should actually make their own pickle masala by grinding seeds and me and mustard and crushed chilies .
But now with the time we don't really like doing our own stuff , we buy it ready made .
So gradually and then staring these items .
If you feel you like your color being a little red , you can add in some egg yellow , but you must also realize egg yellow powder as its own salt .
And now I'm gonna adding my oil .
I normally use raw oil because it tends to cook on its own .
When using boiled oil .
Your veggies don't actually stay crispy .
So this is the second cup .
I think I still need more .
It's a third cup .
Let me stay and see .
And after your pickle is finished and you have extra oil , it tastes very nice when you actually braze your dull with it .
I think this oil is quite enough for me because each day when I'm gonna take it off my fridge , I'm gonna not give it a two and 10 .
It's looking very well coated and there is some extras in the bottom that will allow you to actually suffering it .
And if you like to eat a pickle vege pickle immediately , you would actually uh steam it with vinegar and drive of the exits , not properly .
And then you can go straight into mixing it and you can eat it the very same day .
But you must also realize your veggies won't be crispy .
In this way , your veggies will be left very crispy .
And when you're eating , you get , like , get the sound of the crunch of it .
This can be kept for about three days in the fridge before eating .
Thank you all for watching and I hope you'll enjoy eating pickle in the winter .
