My freezer is getting well stocked with FREE Earthbound Farms Organic Carrots. This week I moved on to preserving them by pickling.
I’m the first to admit I’m a pickling-aholic. I like the taste, variety (except sweet!) and color they add to a plate. For me they kind of finish off the presentation. This past week I made 2 batches of Zesty Pickled Carrots. I found the recipe in Sherri Brooks Vinton’s book, Put’em Up!
Organic carrots are usually thinner, less woody, and I think a better size for pickling. Lucky for us I was able to pick up 3 lbs. for free the week before last at Shaw’s using the $ .75/1 Earthbound Farm Organic Product coupons. Garlic Cloves, Jalepeno Peppers & Red Pepper Flakes make these ‘zesty’. I can’t wait to have a couple of these along side a sandwich for lunch!
I also put up 2 batches of Classic Bread ‘N Butter Pickles. I used the recipe found in the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. These are our son, Sawyer’s, favorite pickle. I cannot go through a season without making these for him.
There’s more pickling to come within the next week! How about you? What have you been canning?
