Hey , everybody .
It is Randa from Randa Nutrition .
And today we are going to make some super easy , quick pickled carrots , the easiest recipe .
So I typically buy pickled carrots from the store .
This tiny jar is eight bucks .
I knew I could do this at a lower cost .
So I'm like , you know what , let's just take my pickled onion recipe and throw some carrots in .
So I took about six carrots .
This is a small batch , six carrots .
I peeled them and sliced them lengthwise .
So this is what I'm left with .
I have a 750 mL mason jar .
So it's like a taller skinnier jar , but you can use whatever jar you can .
You just might have to , you know , cut your carrots to fit them .
So let's just get started in a sauce pan .
We are going to add equal amounts of water and vinegar .
In this case , I'm doing one cup of vinegar and a cup of water .
Next , we're gonna add two teaspoons of salt , a teaspoon and a half of cane sugar or sugar or whatever you have handy .
And a pint of red pepper flakes .
I'm gonna put more because I want them spicy .
So you're going to bring this to a boil on your stove and stir it until the salt and the sugar dissolve .
I'm gonna do that in a second .
You will take your car and you're going to stuff them in the mason jar peeled or not peeled .
Totally your choice .
And there's a lot of nutrition actually in the peels of the car , just give them a good scrub .
You'll probably have to use a scrub brush .
So you're gonna wanna just kinda fiddle around and make them fit .
That one's a little big .
So I actually might have to chop this guy .
They'll make some adjustments .
It's fine .
Totally fine .
There you go .
Uh , there we go .
You're gonna take a clove of garlic .
You can add whatever you want in here , but I'm gonna put in a clove of garlic .
See if I can shove it in somewhere .
If not .
Yeah , I'll just have to lay it on top .
That's fine .
And in the recipe on the random nutrition blog , I have six sprigs of dill .
This store will sell , sold out a fresh dill .
I'm gonna try it with dried dill .
It's not gonna be the same and I don't know what the equivalent of six sprigs will be , but we're just gonna say that'll do the problem with this is it's gonna get on the carrots and float like I'd much prefer fresh .
So , if you have access to that use that instead , I probably put like a tablespoon in there .
It might be overkill .
Might not be .
I love dill flavor .
So it doesn't matter .
So you're gonna set that aside and then so bring this to a boil , stir it until the salt and sugar dissolved and I'll be right back once that's done .
So this took about 2 to 3 minutes .
It does not take long to do and just to clarify , I use distilled white vinegar .
You wanna use a vinegar with a high acidity .
So what we're gonna do is very carefully .
Of course , my toddler decides to come watch now , but very carefully pour this .
Of course , I'm making a mess .
He just wanted to cover the pickle or the carrots .
So I have a little bit left over , but that's ok .
The blog post has three quarters of a cup of water and three quarters of a cup of vinegar .
And it does work for this size jar perfectly .
But I wanted just to , just to see , you know , if you are using a bigger jar , you'll have to do more .
So again , it's , it's equal parts water vinegar and then you might have to double the seasonings just play around with it .
So this is hot .
We're gonna let this come to room temperature .
So it's gonna take about an hour or two and then you will put the lid on and put it in your fridge .
Do not put the lid on while it's coming to temperature .
So I'm going to let this sit for an hour or two .
We'll put it in the fridge and I mean , this will be ready for tomorrow .
It's good for up to three weeks .
And I mean , it , the longer it sits , the better it tastes .
You're funny .
The longer it sits , the better it tastes .
But it will be great tomorrow .
I love pickled carrots on my salads in my stir fry and please don't think I'm crazy , but I like it on my pasta .
