How To of Pickling Antics || The Chinese Five Spice Pickles

Every time I'm slightly drunk & excited enough to order a Pickleback at a bar (shot o Jameson & shot o Pickle Juice) it always reminds me... hey I should really start pickling stuff.  Because while I'm a total traditional Vlassic Classic kind of girl, I do love the occasional artisanal sweet & sour crunch of a homemade pickle.  But not one to be subdued by the standard recipes found online, I decided to play with a few flavors to compliment the eventual Bahn Mi I'm making myself for dinner... oh yes, there will be pictures of that too. Don't worry.

The Chinese Five Spice Pickles
makes about 1 pint
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 t. hawaiian sea salt 
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 stem sage
  • 1 t. chinese five spice
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
In a saucepot bring vinegars, salt, sugar, cinnamon stick, sage & chinese five spice to a simmer.  Let simmer for 2 minutes and then take off heat. Let seep for another 10 minutes. While your pickling liquid is seeping, place cucumber, carrots, onion & garlic into a glass jar. Once the liquid is done seeping, remove the sage & cinnamon stick and pour the remaining liquid over your vegetables.  Seal and refrigerate at least 2 hours until ready to use.
