There have been many immigrants from Haiti in the Antilles for many years. One of the dishes they brought from their country is pikliz; a mixture of different vegetables on vinegar.
Pikliz tastes great with almost any meal and is a great way to get some extra vegetables!
Haitian pikliz is normally very hot. Recipes vary greatly - some people use 2 Madame Jeanette peppers, others as many as 8! Of course, the amount of pepper can be adjusted to your own taste.
- 1/2 white cabbage, in thin strips
- 2 winter carrots, coarsely grated
- 1 onion, in thin rings
- 3 Madame Jeanette peppers
- 4 cloves of garlic, sliced
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 10 peppercorns
- 300ml (white) vinegar
- 100ml water
Cut the vegetables very finely and mix them in a large bowl.
Add the salt and pepper and mix well.
Mix the water with the vinegar.
Take glass jars and fill them with the vegetables.
Pour so much of the vinegar over it until the vegetables are completely covered.
Let the pikliz marinate for at least 24 hours.
Serve pikliz as a side dish with your meal.
Tip: The pikliz will last for at least a month in a refrigerator.
