Pickled Vegetables (Karisik Tursu)

1lt glass jar or plastic container
1/3 cup distilled white vinegar or apple cider vinegar (%5 acidity)
10-12 baby carrots or 2 carrots, sliced in bite sizes or larger (as you like)
¼ bunch of cauliflower, separated in small pieces (as you like)
¼ cabbage, cut into bite sizes or larger (as you like)
1-2 green tomatoes, sliced (cut a tomato in 6-8 slices)
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp salt
6-8 coriander to taste
8-10 ungrounded whole black pepper to taste
1-2 slice celery heart for taste and to be firm
1lt purified water

Put all the vegetables including the garlic and celery, in the glass jar or container. Try to fill as much as you can by pushing from the top. Add the salt, coriander and black pepper and vinegar. Finally add the water till it covers the vegetables. Close the cap tightly and turn the jar or container upside down for a while to let the salt dissolve and mix the water and vinegar.
You can use the same procedure for pickled gherkins and pickled chili peppers. You can make it less spicy by adding 1-2 tsp sugar.
Place them in a dark and cool place. Leave for fermentation for about 2-3 weeks. When it’s done, the vegetables will change in color, they will be crispy.
Tursu goes well with the meat dishes and especially kidney beans (kuru fasulye).
ENJOY
