Carrot Pickles

Ingredients

  • 1 lb carrots, tops removed, peeled if needed, sliced into sticks
  • 2/3 cup distilled white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water (for stronger flavor, sub vinegar)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp organic cane sugar (or stevia to taste)
  •  

Method

.1

Add carrots to a large mason jar or glass container. Set aside.

.2

To a small saucepan add distilled white vinegar, water, salt, and sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and stir to fully dissolve salt and sugar. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more salt or sugar to taste.

.3

Pour the brine over the carrots, ensuring they are fully submerged. If needed, add more vinegar or a little water to cover.

.4

Seal well and shake to combine. Then refrigerate for at least 1 hour. The flavors will deepen and intensify the longer it marinates. Best flavor is achieved after 24 hours.

.5

Will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks (sometimes longer). Not freezer friendly.
