I love pickled asparagus but got tired of spending so much money on tiny little jars and decided to pickle my own. I also like it spicy but feel free to halve the crushed red pepper or omit it altogether if spice is not your thing.

AMAZING!!! I only had 1/2 pound of asparagus, which was quite a disappointment because these turned out so good I couldn't stop eating them! I tried them after 1 day and they were already delicious and addicting, but they got even better as the days went on. The spice-level was exactly how I like it. These make the perfect garnish for a Bloody Mary (or Caesar if you're Canadian!) I'm going to re-use the brine to make another batch, since the first batch disappeared so fast. Read More
