Carrot pickles? For sure! You can do this recipe in minutes using one (or fewer) carrots or easily make even more. Fermented carrots are sweet (from the veg) and sour (from fermenting) and are great on their own, as condiments or added to a dish.
In this video post, I show you how to cold pack jars for pickling and how to make a basic brine. I'll walk you through the process of canning these delicious cumin-spiked pickled carrots from start to finish using a water bath canner.
Pickled carrots are great ate as a snack with other pickled vegetables such as cauliflower, asparagus, beans and my favorite cucumbers. You can pull a jar out and use them in a stir fry or add some in a Bloody Mary.
These pickled carrots are made with garlic, dill seed, fennel seed, sliced serrano chile and fresh, fragrant dill. Enjoy these pickles as an afternoon snack or as an accompaniment to a piled high burger. They are also super tasty with Mexican food!
Good carrots conceal evil habanero (Scotch bonnet) peppers in lovely flower shaped pickles. So innocent, but beware - "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too!" (DO NOT FEED TO DOGS OR CHILDREN!)
