You can begin by slicing up the cabbage. If you purchasedit shredded already, then it should not be difficult to slice it up. When youslice the cabbage or any other ingredients in these steps, make sure youproduce thin slices. Do this for the bell peppers, onion, scallions, and scotchbonnet peppers. Do not use a food processor.
Slice the garlic cloves into square pieces. Grate thelarge carrot into smaller, thinner pieces. Mix these ingredients with all theother sliced ingredients that you produced in the first step. You can use abowl to mix them all together. Add the salt and peppercorns to the mix as well.
Once you have the ingredients mixed together, the nextstep is to pack them into a large glass bottle. Don’t be afraid to press downon the ingredients so that you can fit as much of them into your glass bottleas possible. Add some white vinegar to the top of the packed ingredients beforeplacing the cover back on the bottle.
You have two options at this point. You can eat it rightaway or give it time to marinate. The tastiest option would be to let theingredients marinate for roughly five days. It might be difficult to wait thatlong, but it is worth the wait. The sensation of the flavors on your tonguewill be wonderful by that point.
The pikliz can last for a long time in the bottle. Thewhite vinegar you added will help to preserve the food. You could even leavethe bottle out of the refrigerator for many days and the pikliz will stay fine.But if you want it to last for several months, then you should put the bottlein the refrigerator. However, the pikliz won’t taste as good if it is cooledfor too long because it will lose the heat and spice elements of the dish.
