Rick's Hot Cauliflower and Carrots

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by rickscott

This was based originally on a refrigerator pickle recipe for the pickling liquid. The acid content is high enough for canning. I give these to my DW's office staff as presents for Christmas along with my pickles. They are much requested.
