Pickled broccoli spears recipe?
I was wondering if anyone here has or knows of a recipe for pickled broccoli spears/stalk? Several years ago a neighbor of mine used to make some spicy and delicious spears, and I've thought about trying it myself since I'm starting to get into canning (at least cucumber and okra pickles, so far). I don't know if she ever prepped it for long term storage or not, but they never lasted that long in our house and I hadn't thought about canning back then, either.
I've seen broccoli florets in several mixed pickle recipes (My library at the moment consists of the BBB, Joy of Pickling, and You Can Can), and some initial searches shows it's low-acid like cucumbers, but I hesitate to think that substituting the broccoli for cucumbers in a pickle recipe would be safe (or safe enough if we can't finish a jar/batch in a couple months). Any thoughts on the matter would be much appreciated!
