Light pickling solution recipe

A sweet, tangy solution perfect for pickling delicate vegetables like radish, red onion or fennel.

This is a sweet solution with a distinct flavour from the juniper berries. It is a good pickling solution for delicate vegetables or for those that require less pickling time, such as those with a higher water content. Red onion, fennel or radish are all good options. As a general rule, this solution is suitable for vegetables that can be eaten raw. For vegetables that you would rarely eat raw, I suggest using a sharper, stronger solution.
