Veggies in sugar?  Probably not the first thing you think of when you’re thinking of all things green and healthy but this is actually a wonderful way to get some of the healthiest veggies into your kids – and they’ll come begging for more – another great healthy snack for your kids!

This is a rather big recipe so make sure you have a large glass jar or bowl to store this in and room in your fridge too or make 1/2 a batch to start.  The marinade is simple to make – just make sure you stir really well to get the sugar to dissolve.

Frosted Veggies

What You Need:

1 cup cold water
1 cup sugar
1 cup white vinegar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pound fresh mushrooms
2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups cauliflower florets
2 large red bell peppers, cut into 1 inch strips
2 cups carrots, cut diagonally into strips

How to Make It:

Place the water, sugar, vinegar and salt in a large bowl.
Mix until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Add the vegetables and stir well to coat.
Cover and refrigerate overnight or longer before eating

The longer these set the better they taste.  The sugar makes this a slightly sweet treat.  Cucumbers and onions also work well in this marinade.
