If you've taken a look at our recipes on the blog, you'll notice that Jamie and I love using pickled vegetables whenever we can. They are a great way to get some veggies in a dish and they are an amazing way to add a pop of both color and flavor!
Not to mention pickled vegetables last around 1-2 months once opened but if you make them in batches, you can keep the canned, unopened pickled vegetables for essentially a lifetime.
