Giardiniera (Preserved Vegetable Condiment)

Giardiniera (Preserved Vegetable Condiment)

Here's a lacto-fermented version of giardiniera, the super popular preserved vegetable condiment that is most popular in Chicago delis, but actually originated from Italy.

Traditional preparation calls for pickling (using vinegar) for a period of time, and then adding olive oil to the pickled product. All that is well and good, except that probiotics are not produced when vinegar is added.

So, here's a healthy and delicious makeover of giardiniera. No cooking or canning necessary! And watch the below video for fun tips.
