Thankfully, this amazing YouTuber Suttons Daze shared her version of pickled brussels sprouts and the procedure is very easy to follow.

Here are the ingredients that you’ll need:

  • Brussel sprouts
  • 1 to 2 cloves of garlic (per jar)
  • A quarter teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes (per jar)

For the brine:

  • 5 cups of white vinegar
  • 5 cups of water
  • 7 tablespoons of pickling salt

Just follow these steps:

1. Clean your Brussels sprouts by trimming them.

Remove the tip of the stem from each of the sprouts. Then, cut them in half.

2. Next thing you’ll want to do is to soak them into the water.

The water should have a small amount of salt and leave them there for about 15 minutes.

3. Now, get your jars where you’ll put the sprouts.

Don’t forget to leave one inch of headspace in the jar. You don’t want it to spill once you add the water.

6. For the brine, just put the 5 cups of white vinegar, 5 cups of water, and 7 tablespoons of pickling salt together.

Make sure that the brine is hot when you pour it into the jars. And don’t forget to maintain one inch of headspace in every jar.

7. Once you’ve poured the brine into the jars, de-bubble each jar.

This is a very important process. Then, close its lids and let them have a hot water bath for 10 minutes.

And that’s it. Although the pickled sprouts already look good, you have to wait for about 2 weeks before you could open and enjoy eating them. But if you couldn’t wait to try them, 2 days is already enough.

The thing is the more you wait, the tastier it will get. Leaving it for quite some time will let the brine penetrate the sprouts.
