Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • This is a basic recipe that you can jazz up! Add sliced jalapenos for spicy sweet n’ tangy pickles, add some celery or caraway seeds for extra crunch, or make it colorful by adding yellow or purple cauliflower.
  • Don’t cook the cauliflower! You don’t need to boil the cauliflower. It’ll soften up a bit in the pickling liquid but you want it to retain its distinctive crunch.
  • Package the cauliflower with enough pickling liquid to cover it.
  • Keep the keto Pickled Cauliflower in the fridge for up to a month.
  • You can eat these pickles right away, but they taste best after a few days in the fridge.

You bet! When you use SoNourished white sugar substitute, they’re totally keto and totally delicious! With about 2 net carbs per serving, you’re all set!

How long will keto Cauliflower Pickles keep?

Under normal refrigeration and when covered by the pickling brine, these sweet and tangy pickles will keep for about a month in the fridge.

Can you freeze these cauliflower pickles?

Not really – they’ll freeze but they’ll lose a lot of their tangy crunch when you thaw them.
