As I read more recipes, many seemed to have a basic theme: 2 cups vinegar, 2 cups water, 1/4 cup kosher or pickling salt, brought to boil and poured over a jar of prepared veggies and spices (peppercorns, whole allspice, garlic cloves, cloves, hot peppers, etc). We later discovered that any that don't have a distinct garlic bite needed more sugar, so I added a sugar syrup the next day to the beets and the tupperware container full of mixed veggies that didn't fit in the jars.
Here's my results:
Beets, with some freeze dried ginger, allspice, cloves, sugar, peppercorns in jar:
Greens beans, carrots with minced freeze dried garlic, peppercorns, allspice, mustard seeds, little sugar, onion:
cucumber slices with significant garlic, peppercorns, mustard seeds:
