  1. Combine vinegar, salt, and sugar in a non-reactive saucepan over low heat; stir until salt and sugar are dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in water. Let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
  2. Place sugar snap peas, tarragon, garlic, lemon zest, dill seed, and red pepper flakes in a 1-quart Mason jar. Pour vinegar mixture into the jar.
  3. Cover jar and refrigerate until peas are lightly pickled, at least 1 day and up to 2 weeks.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Be sure to trim the ends off the pea pods to allow a full immersion of the brine.
