Turshi: Middle eastern Pickle

If you haven't had "Turshi" yet, you are really missing on something. It is essentially pickled carrots, cucmber and other vegetables, but a little high on the vinegar.
It is great to have with Middle Eastern food, like kabas, hummus etc. In fact for me it is hard to enjoy those foods without turshi.
And making it is super simple, super easy and cheap.
Your choice of vegetables chopped up. I prefer, pickle cucumbers, cauliflower and carrots.
Few cloves of garlic
Crushed red pepper flakes.
4 cups water
1/2 cup white vinegar
3 tbsp pickling salt
Divide the vegetables in jars.
Boil the water. Turn off heat and add the salt and vinegar. Dissolve.
Pour the hot liquid in jars and leave jars open to cool.
Then place lids and refrigerate.
You are done! That is it!
