I love nothing better than a big helping of Chicago-style hot giardiniera on a juicy Italian beef sandwich. Joe and I also like this relish on eggs, bread, sandwiches, mac-n-cheese, or with anything else we’re craving a hot/sour tang.
Sterilize your jars, lids and rings according to standard canning pracices.
Place vegetables into a bowl and sprinkle with the salt. Cover the vegetables with water and allow to sit for 4 hours or overnight.
After they are done soaking, drain the vegetables.
Set the oil aside.
Whisk together the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl.
Pack veggies tightly into pint jars. Pour 1/4 cup of oil into each jar. Ladle the vinegar/seasoning mixture into the jars until full (leave 1/2 inch headspace), tapping the jar on the counter to release air bubbles. Wipe the edges of the jars, put the seals and rings on and seal them hand-tight.
Process the jars in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes. Remove jars from the canner and allow to cool. Check seals and tighten lids, if necessary, before storing. Allow the jars to marinate for a few days before using. If any of the jars don’t seal properly refrigerate them.
Makes approximately 4 pints.
Note: If you choose not to process these jars in a canner, they will last for several weeks in the refrigerator.
