Maple Brined Seasonal Pickles

Gather your favorite seasonal vegetables, apple cider vinegar and pure maple syrup and ferment away! You can pickle just about anything, but we recommend using vegetables such as red onion, carrots, cabbage and even an avocado! The brine is the perfect combination of sweet and savory thanks to 100% natural pure maple syrup mixed with mustard seeds and red chili flakes. These pickled vegetables are great for topping sandwiches yet tasty enough to eat on their own, too.
