An easy recipe for a crispy, spicy batch of garlic-and-dill pickled asparagus spears. If the first thing that popped into your head was “Bloody Mary!”, then you clearly you, dear reader, are awesome. *Now openly accepting brunch invitations
My first taste was with cocktails and just straight out of the jar. So, incredibly delicious. When I was in a more civilized mood I made a pretty salad, dotted with goat cheese and croutons before drizzling with some of the pickling juice. Umm wow!
These mustardy asparagus pickles are seductive for their simplicity and amazing complexity of flavor. Inspired by the classic, mustard sauce served with asparagus, these are fermented with lots of mustard seeds and garlic.
