Pickled Carrots

Carrots are known to be the perfect healthy food. They are known to contain vitamin K, antioxidants, fiber and many other nutrients. They provide a crisp crunch taste ingredient to almost any dish. We found an awesome carrot pickle recipe that can be enjoyed as a snack. Make it once and enjoy it for as long as three months. Try it out and let us know what you think!

Ingredients


  • 12 to 14 ounces carrots
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon five-spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions


  1. Peel and trim the carrots, then cut them into sticks roughly 4 inches long and 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Place the garlic in a pint canning jar. Then, standing the sticks upright, pack them as tightly as possible into the jar. (See the note above if you find this difficult.) In a small saucepan, stir together the five-spice powder, salt, lemon juice, and vinegar (but not the water).
  3. Bring to a boil, stir again, and immediately pour the brine over the carrots.
  4. Then boil the water in the same pan and pour in as much as you need to fill the jar.
  5. Cap the jar and shake gently. Place it in the refrigerator and let it sit for three days to let the flavor develop, shaking occasionally.
  6. The carrots will remain good for about three months.
  7. Enjoy!
