Cooking cauliflower for the winter:

Step 1: Prepare the vegetables.

Divide the head of cauliflower with a knife into small inflorescences. Remove the skin from the carrots and cut into thick straws, if you took a small carrot young, you can just rinse it with a brush and do not chop. Divide the bell peppers in half, cut the tail, core and seeds with a knife. Cut the peppers themselves into large strips, as well as carrots, or into rings, depending on your preference. Peel the celery stalks slightly with the tip of a knife, if necessary, but usually it’s enough just to chop them.
Put all the vegetables in a colander and place in the sink. Rinse them thoroughly under running hot, but not scorching water. Remove all possible twigs, leaves and sticky earth. Let clean vegetables get rid of excess moisture, for this, just leave a colander with them for a while, fixing it on weight.

Step 2: Preserve Cauliflower.

Arrange cabbage and other vegetables in prepared jars. Boil water and carefully pour in her cabbage and other ingredients. Wait 3-5 minutes and drain the water. Boil the drained water again, adding all the spices except vinegar, it should be added only after the water boils. Pour the marinade into cans. Roll up the lids, thereby finally preserving cauliflower. Wrap your blanks with a towel and turn over. Wait until it cools down, approximately 1-2 days and return the jars to their original position, after sending them stored to your other blanks in a dark and cool place.

Step 3: Serve canned cauliflower.

Serve the cabbage prepared for the winter as a side dish or a very beautiful snack to the festive table. You can also stitch vegetables on special skewers and serve them in this form by laying them on a platter.
Enjoy your meal!
