This is a very good snack - used Splenda instead of sugar and added pepperoncini and dried dill weed. A small sack of baby carrots filled a quart and the liquid was just the right amount. Read More

Similar but not as tasty as mine... I use equal parts (2 cups) water and vinegar. 1/4 cup of sugar, add 2 teaspoons of pickling (brisket) spices, 1/2 tsp of salt, no pepper and blanch the carrots. This brine is also excellent for picked beets and pickled watermelon rind. Read More

These are a really really good tangy finger food. I used baby carrots quartered lengthwise & served them on a tray with Jean's Marinated Mushrooms Deviled Eggs & Cream Cheese Pickles. Read More

I have used this type of recipe with some variations. I add cauliflower, red pepper strips,red onion, celery and toss in some black peppercorns along with the carrots. It is more economical to do this than to purchase Giardiniera. I use dishwasher cleaned pickle bottles, etc. Always a hit on a relish tray for a covered dish affair. Read More

Good recipe. You have to be very careful about how you slice your carrots and other veggies versus how long you marinate them in the vinegar mixture. After about 24 hours, thinly sliced zuccini and radishes turned out wonderful in this marinade. However, shredded carrots were REALLY vinegary, and 1/4" carrot slices were kind of bland. So monitor you pickles closely for flavor. Also, I did not think the recipe made enough marinade for the number of carrots, so I would suggest doubling the recipe to be on the safe side. Read More

These carrots are delicious! To make them spicy I added some garlic sliced jalapenos and red pepper flakes. I have had several requests for this very easy to make and tasty recipe. I also added in some cauliflower for some color and they taste great too! Read More

too much vinegar, these just didn't work at all. there was no "pickle" like bite, just Vinegar bite. Followed instructions exactly, and it just didn't work out. Maybe the planets weren't aligned properly or something. Read More

Recipe was easy to make - I used a 1 lb bag of baby carrots and it worked well carrots were tangy and nice and crisp. I think some additional seasoning would be nice but I'm not sure what I'd add. Everyone else thought they were good as is. Read More
