1 knob fresh turmeric (peeled and minced) or 1 TBS turmeric powder
3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup water
2 star anise stars (optional)
1/2 t peppercorns (any kind)
5 T coconut sugar
3 slices dried or fresh blood oranges
1/2 head cauliflower flowers
Put all ingredients in a saucepan except the cauliflower. Bring to a boil and gently simmer for 5 minutes. Pour over cauliflower in a large wide-mouthed mason jar. Let sit uncovered until the jar is room temp to the touch. Cover and keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. Put on top of salads, rice bowls, or snack on throughout the day!
***You can substitute apple cider vinegar for any light colored vinegar, as well as the coconut sugar for any kind of sugar or syrup. Start with a couple tablespoons, dip your finger for taste and add more or less depending on if you want sweeter or more savory pickled vegetables.
