Spicy pickled pumpkin

The pumpkin is one of the vegetables that have little taste of their own. To make it really tasty, you have to do something for the aroma. A good way to give the pumpkin a special taste is e.g. pickling in alcohol, vinegar or sugar. (Reading tip: Preserving vegetables - 5 options presented)

If you want to insert a pumpkin, you have many different options to choose from. In any case, it is important that you only use fresh vegetables. You should not store the pumpkin for a long time beforehand. (Reading tip: store pumpkin - how it's done)

And the good thing: if you put the pumpkin in vinegar, you can prevent the development of putrefactive bacteria. In this way, the canned food can be kept for longer than two years. With canned vinegar you can also decide for yourself how high the acidity and thus the strength of the wort should be. If the preserve is only weakly acidified, it is much more aromatic. When it comes to seasoning, you can refine, for example, dill, caraway, laurel, pepper, mustard seeds, horseradish and tarragon.


Boil the pumpkin, this should be done at a maximum temperature of 70 degrees. In addition, it is best to add a little sugar to the whole thing, as this can suppress the formation of putrefaction, yeast and mold.
