How To Make Pickled Vegetables In 24 Hours: Khmer Cambodian Southeast Asian Pickles Dressing Recipe

Source

Overnight Pickled Vegetable Recipe

Pickled Vegetables make for a great treat! You can snack on them alone, or incorporate them as a side dish.

This recipe is easy to use and takes less than a half hour to prepare, but needs to sit overnight to marinate.

Unlike most pickled vegetables recipes, this recipe does not require you to go through a long pickling process; the vegetables are ready to eat in 24 hours and can be kept for up to 2 weeks if sealed and refrigerated properly.

So let's look at what Ingredients we need and follow the recipe:

Garlic Cloves
3 Whole

Bird's Eye Chili Peppers

  • Combine Vinegar, Salt and Sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat once boiling and set aside.
  • Combine the Vegetables, Garlic, Coriander Leaves and Chili Peppers in a bowl.
  • Pour the Vinegar Mixture over the Vegetables and allow to marinate overnight.
  • Store your Pickled Vegetables in a glass (Mason) jar. Make sure you keep the cover tight to maintain a tight seal.

I've been writing for a while, but I don't half know what I'd like to about hubbing! :)

I can relate; there are so many things I want to write...then there is the social aspect of HubPages! It is hard to discipline oneself to the art of consistent writing. I am trying to work on that now. Please check out some more of my Hubs. I have been following you for a while and I appreciate the comments you have left me and for your recent following.

Wow, I love anything pickled, will definitely have to try. Only 24 hours is amazing, can hardly wait...Thanks for sharing!

Here is my chance. Thank you for this recipe and all the help and advice you've given me with the Hubs.

My idea these days is not to work my kidneys with too much salt or phosphorus. I like recipes where you can control the salt because so many of the pickles on the market are packed with salt and preservatives. And, I like the light taste of rice vinegar. If I just made this recipe with cucumbers, I'd be happy.

Really? It's that easy, JS? I love pickles of any sort, but I don't have the time to learn how to can things right now. I might have to try this one! Voted up and useful!

I appreciate all your comments and voting Victoria Lynn. It really is that easy! I hope that you try this recipe and come back with your experience. Arlene V. Poma suggested trying this recipe with only cucumbers. I would like to try that myself. Thanks again for stopping by!

Okay, J.S. My refrigerator died, and I am proud to say I got a spanking new one offering ice and ice water. My husband and I are now waiting on the cucumbers to "cook" in the refrigerator and can't wait. So, instead of opening the door again and again and wasting energy, we are going to Tahoe to help us with the wait. Thanks for the wonderful recipe and the 3-day vacation.

Hello again Arlene!

I am sorry to hear about your refrigerator dying but I'm glad that you got a new one! I have one that dispenses water and ice and don't know how I survived without it! Have a safe trip to Tahoe and I can't wait to hear what you think of this recipe! Thanks for coming back and I am looking forward to your response.

J.S.: The cucumbers turned out light, yet crispy. And very tasty. Making another batch before the first batch disappears. Hope to try out your other recipes because as far as I know, there aren't any Cambodian restaurants here in Sacramento. What's so great about living in the U.S. is exposure to so many cultures. And with those cultures come some great recipes! Thanks!

I am so happy that you liked it and are making more Arlene! Isn't it cool that you can make pickles in a day? I appreciate you trying these recipes and leaving comments on how you liked them. Thanks for your support! One of the greatest things about America is it's diversity!

Do you think I could do this one with cucumbers and sweet onions? We are not real big on radish but love cukes so I was just wondering if you thought that combination would work? I love your recipes and presentation because they are so simple to read and understand...keep writing, please!


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello again DonnaCosmato! Yes, you can do this with cucumber and sweet onion! You can do it with most vegetables and even some fruit Arlene V. Poma made it with the cucumbers and she and her husband love it! Try it out and let me know what you think! Thanks for the awesome comment! I promise to write more!

Hi,

Do we wait for the vinegar to cool down first?

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello Tintin. Yes, you want to set the vinegar mixture aside to let it cool. Once it is room temperature you are ready to go! Thanks for checking out this recipe and I hope that you enjoy it!
