Pickling carrots…

12 Aug

I am about to start an adventure that I have never attempted before. Pickling carrots.

I have tried cucumbers before…not a fan of the result. Too much pickling spice, no dill. This time I am armed with a recipe from the internet (meaning someone else’s!) and my pure talent (ha!).

Wish me luck!

And any tips would be greatly appreciated!! (Kelli & Tony this means you…..PLEASE let me have that recipe!!)

Oh, and if it works, I’ll put up the recipe…if it doesn’t, we will never mention this again, ok?!

    I haven’t made any since we moved. But I’m pretty sure we used Gramma Scheibner’s recipe! Give her a call.

    I think you are too funny…they will be awesome-I’m sure!! If you are doing a big, fat batch…wash em in your washing machine. I know this sounds crazy, but just put it on the rinse cycle and it will get all the dirt off—-and get fresh, garden carrots—-don’t use grocery store ones. Go to the hutterites. You are great–you make me grin–I love visiting your blog! 🙂

      Aw thanks! Washing machine? Really? I’ll run that by my husband, I doubt he’ll give it the green light…

    Good luck! I have yet to try canning or pickling. Some sort of jam is on my list. I haven’t seen carrots pickled before. Looking forward to seeing your results!

    I used to love pickled carrots when I was little. My best friends mom made the best ones.

      I’m looking forward to it…kinda. I’m not a great cook, and pickling can be tricky. Wish me luck!


I love to hear what you think!!!
