“Giardiniera is a mixture of pickled veggies, usually served as a condiment, side dish, or mixed into salads. Here is a recipe for making both the sweet or the hot variety. Basically its the same vegetable mix, the sweet version contains sugar in the marinating liquid, the hot version does not. The sweet version takes 2 days to marinate. The hot version takes 2 to 3 weeks. Since I don't can, I can't give you instructions for that....sorry. The "cook time" is the marinating time for the sweet version.”
