Pickled Cauliflower


I’ve never had anything pickled besides cucumbers until this week. That’s when I attended a picnic where one of the guys brought his dilly beans to share. They were great but when I went to find some beans to try making a batch of my own, they were all limp 😦 So I ended up trying cauliflower instead. I’ll find out how they taste in about a month!
