  • 7 Stalks Celery Cut into ¼" pieces
  • 3 English cucumbers Diced into ¼" pieces

  • 10 lbs Roma Tomatoes
  • 3 heads Garlic Peeled and chopped
  • 2 Jalapenos Deseeded and diced
  • 2 ½ cup White Vinegar

  • Trim the green beans, cut them into ¼" pieces. Bring a pot of water to boil and steam the green beans for 10 minutes. Then let them dry completely. 
  • Wash cauliflower florets,  celery, English cucumber and carrots. Mix together and let dry completely. 
  • Cut each Roma tomato into 8 pieces and put them in a large pot. Turn the heat on to medium and cook the tomatoes until fully soft. 
  • Transfer the cooked tomatoes into a food processor or blender and blend completely until no chunks are left. If needed, mix the tomatoes in batches. 
  • Transfer the tomatoes back to the pot and turn the heat on to medium and bring the tomatoes to simmer. 
  • Simmer for 30 minutes. Turn the heat off and the tomatoes reach room temperature. 
  • Once the tomatoes are at room temperature, add the garlic and jalapenos to them and stir well. 
  • Next, add in the white vinegar and salt. Stir well. 
  • Fill clean Mason jars with the dry vegetables and green beans and then pour the tomato mixture on the vegetables until the jar is completely full up to the rims. 
  • Place the lids on the mason jars tightly and make sure they're fully sealed. 
  • Let the jars sit in cold temperature for 10 days.
  • After 10 days, the Persian pickles are ready to eat. 


  • Check the mason jars after 5 days. If the veggies have absorbed the tomato sauce, Add some more vinegar to fill the jar up to the rim. 
  • Once you start eating the pickles from a jar, there's no need to fill it with vinegar anymore. Just put the jar in the fridge after opening it. 
  • If you like the pickles to be super spicy, add more jalapenos.
