Aren't these so pretty?! We are lucky to have a year round farmer's market not too far away. The kids and I picked up some carrots for snacks, soups and all sorts of other yummy carrotness recently. As we did not get the amount of canning done that we had planned on this year I decided to get some extra pickles made for us. These are spicy pickled carrots and I'm thinking they are going to be very spicy. We all love pickles but only Jack and I really like the heat so we'll see how they go over when it is time to pop them open in a month or so. I would like to say that next time I'm making anything with a brine I should probably not do it an hour before bed because that is a smell that hangs around! This is the book that I found the recipe in. I love that it is broken into seasons and it fun to read not just to pick up for it's recipes. Do you have this book and have a favorite recipe from it? Or do you maybe have a favorite way to preserve carrots or other winter root veggies? I would love to hear them.
