Quick Pickling

David learned a quick and easy way to pickle any vegetable or fruit! Kelli Hanley Potts from the Agrarian Collective joined him in the kitchen – take a look at our video clip!

Some of Kelli’s Tips:


  • Use Kosher or Pickling salt as other salt contains iodine, added minerals, or cracking agents that will make your pickles bitter and your brine cloudy
  • Sea salt should be avoided as well because of the naturally occurring minerals- great for cooking bad for pickling!


  • The brine is the liquid that the vegetables “marinate” in to become our favorite treats
  • The bulk of the brine will be vinegar (acidic) which will help preserve the vegetables and kill harmful bacteria
  • The brine will often contain sugar, spices, salt and water- though not always
  • Substitute vinegars is fine but will alter the flavor of the pickle for the quick pickle- this is far more important when canning when the pH and acidity are much, much more important

Motorcycles and a great cause have brought three Hollywood stars to Cleveland! David caught up with Katee Sackhoff, Gilles Marini, and Teddy Sears to learn more about the Kiehl’s LifeRide for amFAR.
