Pickled Carrots.....

 Lynn at Happier than a Pig in Mud shared this Carrot Pickle recipe and I decided to make some to add to holiday gift baskets.  I altered the recipe a bit, but you can visit her blog for the original recipe!

I used little jars for the gift baskets....

...and a larger jar for me!

I am so anxious to taste these!

Here's what I did:

 Pickled Carrots
1 lb carrots, sliced
Boil:  1 1/2 c cider vinegar, 1 1/2 c water, 1 cup sugar until sugar is dissolved.
Add carrots, 3 cloves garlic, 1 t celery seed, 1t red pepper flakes.
Bring to a boil, them simmer for 6 minutes.
Pour into jars.
This filled 3 small jars and a pint jar, and a little left over for me to taste tonight!

  1. I used to dip my carrots in vinegar as a child. I'll have to try these.

  2. They'll look great in your gift baskets! Hope you love them:@)

  3. Oh yum, I love all things pickled! Bet these will be a hit. Perfect for gift baskets........
