I need help with what ingredients to use. I tried my first batch of canning pickled vegies last year, and they taste terrible. I had no clue what I was doing. I basiclly just used vinager, oil, and threw in some regular spices (can't remember what now). Is there a way I can fix it? I've had them jarred in the fridge for a year, and they were still crispy last I check a couple months ago. I tried another taste, and they were still awful. Too vinagery, but that was my main ingredient. Is is possible to pour the whole mass of it (6-8 jars) in a bowl and redo it some how? If so, what could I try?
The veggies are broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. My mom used to make a great canned veggie with these when I was young, and all I remember was that they were oily and tasted great.
