WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Try these garlicky-dilly pickled carrots chopped in your dinner salad for a burst of flavor.

Ingredients
Prep: 40 minutes (plus 1 day marinating time) | Total Time: 40 minutes
  • 2 1/2 pounds
    carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch sticks (about 9 cups)
  • 12-24 sprigs
    fresh dill
  • 3-6 whole large cloves
    garlic, sliced
  • 3 cups
    distilled white vinegar, or cider vinegar
  • 3 cups
    water
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons
    sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons
    sugar
Instructions
  1. Place a large bowl of ice water next to the stove. Bring a large pot of water to a boil in a large pot. Add half of the carrot sticks, cover, return to a boil and cook for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the carrots to the ice water to cool. Repeat with the remaining carrots.
  2. Drain the cooled carrots and divide among 6 pint-size (2-cup) canning jars or similar-size tempered-glass or heatproof-plastic containers with lids. Divide the dill and garlic among the jars.
  3. Combine vinegar, 3 cups water, salt and sugar in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until the salt and sugar dissolve. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  4. Carefully fill jars (or containers) with brine to within 1/2 inch of the rim, covering the carrots completely. (Discard any leftover brine.)
  5. Place the lids on the jars (or containers). Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
