1. remove the peel or rinse the vegetables, clean and cut into coarse strips. Later empty separately or mixed in hot rinsed jars.

2. remove ginger from peel, cut into slices and beat flat with a kitchen cleaver.

In a large saucepan, bring 2 1/2 liters of water to a boil with the salt, sugar, chilies, star anise, peppercorns, ginger and rice liquor. The salt as well as sugar should melt, 4. Pour the hot marinade over the vegetables. Seal the jars and let the vegetables stand for 1-2 days.

Tip: If you have a preserving jar, mold all the vegetables with the marinade into it. You can then always remove the desired mass.

If you always season the marinade a little, you can use it just as repeatedly for fresh vegetables.
