Kirby cucumbers, move over just a bit. Zucchini is taking a turn at becoming a well-loved pickle. The natural sweetness of small zucchini is a great foil for this garlicky chili-spiced brine.

What You'll Need
  • 3 1/2 cups white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 10 garlic cloves, peeled and lightly crushed
  • 6 long red chillies
  • 2 teaspoons black peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 4 medium or 6 small zucchini, trimmed and cut into 2 by ½-inch sticks (or crosswise, ½-inch thick)
  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the zucchini In a nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
  2. Place the zucchini in a large heatproof container and pour the brine over. Let stand until room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for up to one month.
