I’m not crazy about pickles in general, but love pickled Brussels sprouts. Unlike pickled asparagus or pickled green beans, pickled Brussels sprouts can be difficult to find on the grocery shelf, so every year I make my own. Pickling Brussels sprouts is an easy canning project, very cost effective, and sinus clearing too!

As a child, I used to help my grandmother and her sisters with the canning. I can remember the pungent smell of vinegar filling the house as they all made enough pickles to feed a small army. This recipe is no different. My husband said he could smell the vinegar mixture in the back yard.

Home Canning Safety Guidelines

Before starting any canning project, it’s always a good idea to brush up on home canning safety tips. Lessons learned at Grandma’s knee might no longer be considered safe. Mother Earth News has published many canning articles that help keep us up-to-date, including the very helpful Home Canning Guide.
