Pickled Refrigerator Cauliflower
Pickled Refrigerator Cauliflower | This Pickled Refrigerator Cauliflower is a great way to work your vegetables into your diet. The cauliflower is crisp and very tasty . Not too sweet with just the right amount of sour from the vinegar. Create the BEST relish tray and let your pickled cauliflower be the star of the tray! Need to add a little zip to your salad? Yep, you guessed it….add Pickled Refrigerator Cauliflower! How about dressing up that juicy burger with a few pieces of pickled cauliflower? Truth is that just about any burger is better with pickled vegetables!
This year we planted cauliflower (below is a pic from my garden)! I love roasted cauliflower but after awhile I needed to create something different and so that’s when I got to work creating this delicious versatile recipe.
I made this recipe in a large 2 quart jar but you can divide the cauliflower into smaller jars and give them away as gifts. Another great recipe and gift idea is my Pickled Refrigerator Spicy Carrots. I love handing out jars of pickled veggies after a barbecue. I know weird but the guests seem to love it. It’s something homemade and they just had the same veggies with dinner so they know they’re tasty too!
I’m not sure if this is too far fetched but If you’re planning a country wedding (like in a barn), adding a jar of homemade pickled veggies to your party favor container would be amazing! Besides like I always say “EVERYTHING IS BETTER IN A MASON JAR”!

Can these pickles be frozen? I have made regular freezer pickles from cucumbers but wonder if I cauliflower.
I love that idea Barbara. It’s definitely worth a try. You can buy frozen cauliflower so I don’t why it wouldn’t work.
Just leave overnight in fridge….that’s long enough? Does time make it stronger?
Hi Peter, The vegetables will absorb all the liquid/flavor they can within 24 hours.
I love the way these pickles look! I’ve only really been into pickling onions and cabbage recently but I’m definitely going to branch out after finding this recipe! Thank you so much for sharing! Can’t wait to try these at home.
How long do they last in the refrigerator
Hi Debi, The pickled cauliflower should stay fresh for a least a week in the refrigerator.
Will it go bad after a week

I have complete faith in you Linda!
Is there a replacement for bay leaf we have a heck of time finding good bay leaf.
Hi Aleta, You could use fresh thyme.
Hi. Once the cauliflower is pickled, how wil it last in the fridge. It sounds good and looks so colourful I would like to try them.
Hi Val, The cauliflower will last at least a week in the refrigerator….maybe even longer. It doesn’t last that long in my refrigerator so I don’t have anything to go on except how good it still is for the week it does last.
Can Splenda be used in place of the sugar? Thank you.
Hi Deb, Splenda has a recipe for Bread and Butter Pickles so I would say yes! ♥
How hot is this recipe. It looks great and I would like to give a jar to my father, but I don’t think he could handle too much heat.
Hi Tracy, I’m a whimp when it comes to spicy food and I can eat the cauliflower just fine. I think it’ll be okay for your dad.
Had to add salt you make the brine for I can last longer in the refrigerator
Great idea Jim.
How much salt would you add?
Hi Elizabeth, This is a sweet pickling solution.
