    Is There a General Formula for Pickling Liquid?

    Wed Feb 13, 2013 10:11 am Groupie
    I'm trying some pickled cabbage and planning my garden. I was reading a bunch of recipes for assorted mixed pickles and thinking how I can't possibly count on having those specific things ready in the garden at one time.

    Is there a general formula for X amount of vinegar to Y amount of water to Z pounds of vegetables?

    And is the sugar in sweet pickles part of the preservation or just for flavor? (I think most sweet pickles, both home recipe and commercial, are TOO SWEET!!!!!).

    I'd like to be able to play with the kinds of vegetables I'm using according to what the garden is producing, the spices, and the level of sweetness but I'd need to be able to feel secure that I'm sticking carefully to the correct ratio of vinegar to weight of vegetables.

    Is this possible?
