Pickled Vegetables         酸 菜

Everyone loves an appetizer especially one that increases the appetite. This makes the palette yarning for more foods. Pickled vegetables are the perfect appetizer. The sugary, sour taste makes you want to eat more. Sometimes I just cannot stop eating it. It is best to make a litre worth and store in fridge. The best results are when it has been soaked overnight or throughout the week as the vegetables intensifies. Absolutely delicious!
