I'm making pickled, brined vegetables - beets from the garden - and the recipe says to let the brine solution cool before pouring it over the vegetables in jars. Is it really necessary to allow the solution to cool first? Also, I'd love some opinions on what flavors to add to the jar - fennel, corriander, etc?
