Pickled cabbage and green beans

I used the below pickle recipe on cabbage and green beans.


Pickle juice
1 c water
1 c rice wine vinegar
2 c distilled white vinegar
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp kosher salt
2 tbsp soy sauce
6-8 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp sichuan peppercorns
1/2 white onion, sliced thin

Stuff to be pickled
One handful napa cabbage, shredded
One handful green cabbage, shredded
One handful green beans


Put the stuff to be pickled into jars (I kept the two kinds of cabbage separated to see how each one did) along with the garlic, peppercorns, and onion. Put everything else in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. Pour it into the jars, filling to the top. Put the tops on the jars. Let them sit until cool and then refrigerate. Let pickle for a few days then eat.
