Yield: Yields about 2 pints
Tangy pickled fennel is a good match for fish and seafood. It’s also great with roasted lean meats like chicken and pork.
Toast the mustard seeds and peppercorns in a small dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Grind to a medium-coarse texture in a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Pack the fennel into the jars, layering it with the spice mixture.
In a medium saucepan, bring the vinegar, sugar, oil, 1 Tbs. salt, and 1/2 cup water to a boil over medium heat. Pour the liquid over the fennel until it reaches the top of the jars. Screw on the lids, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate for 3 days before using. The fennel will keep in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks.

Haven't made the recipe but I was interested to learn that boiling a quart jar for 10 minutes will turn it into 2 pint jars. Good thing to know if you need pint jars at some point.
