tasty tuesday - tis the season...

for PICKLES!!!

Dilled Carrots

here is what you'll need:

1 head of dill for each pint of pickles you're making
1 clove of garlic per pint
carrots - to fill as many pint jars as you're making
pickling salt - 1 tbsp per pint
Boiling white vinegar - 1/4 cup per pint jar
boiling water - to fill jar

this recipe is awesome because you can make as many or as few jars as you like!

what you'll need to do:

place head of dill and clove of garlic in hot sterilized pint jar
fill with carrots to within 1" of top
measure salt over carrots
add vinegar
fill with boiling water to withing 1/4" of top
seal tightly
let stand 6 weeks before using.

ENJOY!


variations:

add a couple jalapenos to the jar when you're filling it... dilled jalapenos are delicious! and spicy dill carrots are delicious too!

add extra dill or garlic - its not an exact science

try other kinds of pickles. this recipe is great because you can make one jar and see if you like it before committing to a huge batch of something you're not sure about.
dilled beans are delicious!
