Auntie Olga's Carrot Pickles


  • 10 cups Water
  • 4 cups Pickling Vinegar
  • ½ cup Pickling Salt
  • Peel carrots – then quarter them or halve them depending on their size and put them in a pail of water.

Then I put the dill and 2 cloves of garlic in a quart jar – 1 clove if you are using pint jars. Then arrange the carrots neatly in the jar. Add brine – seal – and put in hot water bath – just bring to boil and remove from canner.

(If you want HOT pickles just add 1 tsp.of Cayenne Pepper to a quart or ½ tsp to a pint)

These are great served in a ceasar drink instead of a stalk of celery.

They need one week to absorb all the flavors before eating.
