Would I buy special seeds, wrestle with spiny green monsters, and individually prep dozens of tiny cucumbers just so I could make something I could buy in a store? Of course I would. And you can too! Also, pate.
Taking a flavor note from a popular gin and bringing it to the front, I experimented with pickling cucumber slices using a brine of gin, mint, lime, and juniper. Like a eating a classic cocktail in delicious pickle form.
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!
