About the Recipe
In this recipe there is work to do but is easy to perform.
In this pickle fresh herbs are used, which are the parsley and the thyme. Don’t use the herbs dried because we want the herbs’ flavor to last for a long time and that doesn’t happen when they are dried.
We give the recipe with apple cider vinegar although white vinegar could also be used.
The pickle preparation will take you like 20 minutes. In the same way as in other pickles it is also left resting for a pair of days so all the flavors of the preparation can be appreciated.
