Pickled Cauliflower or Brussel Sprouts

12 cups of 1- to 2-inch cauliflower flowerets or small Brussel sprouts
4 cups white vinegar (5%)
2 cups sugar
2 cups thinly sliced onions
1 cup diced sweet red peppers
2 Tbsp. mustard seed
1 Tbsp. celery seed
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. hot red-pepper flakes

Yield: About 9 half-pints

Wash cauliflower flowerets or Brussel sprouts (remove stems and blemished outer leaves) and boil in salt water (4 tsp. canning salt per gallon of water) for 3 minutes for cauliflower and 4 minutes for Brussel sprouts. Drain and cool.

Combine vinegar, sugar, onion, diced red pepper, and spices in large saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes.

Distribute hot onion and diced pepper among jars. Fill jars with pieces and hot pickling solution, leaving a 1/2-inch headspace. Adjust lids and process.
