This carrot pickle with thyme and whiskey is super delicious! Pickling is a great way to preserve carrots from the garden or leftover in the fridge! Any type of carrot can be used for pickling. The carrot should be bright colored and free of blemishes and soft spots. These pickles are a great side dish and delicious in salads.
A few tips for pickling:
- Use pickling salt or sea salt – Table salt contains iodine and anti-caking agents that can darken pickles and cause cloudiness and residue in your jars.
- Use vinegar with at least 5% acidity
- Make sure to sterilize the jars before using
The pickled carrots make a great gift for any pickle lover.
