Grilled Pickled Fruits and Vegetables

April 11, 2013


Taking inspiration from pitmaster Chris Lilly’s grilled pickle recipe found here, today we’re firing up some grilled and pickled okra, tomatoes and zucchini. 

 Pickled Fruits and Vegetables in Jars


4 small zucchini sliced in half, grilled then quartered

2 cups okra, grilled whole

4 vine-ripened tomatoes halved, grilled then quartered

6 garlic cloves peeled

3 tsp. peppercorns

6 sprigs thyme

2 cups white wine vinegar

1 cup water

½ cup sugar

2 tbsp. salt


Preheat grill to medium.  Place small saucepan on the grill grate and add garlic, thyme, peppercorns, salt sugar, vinegar and water.  Simmer until salt and sugar have evaporated, approximately 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Add grilled vegetables to mason jars, cover with liquid mixture, add lids and refrigerate for at least 72 hours before serving.
