$ 2.12 recipe / $ 0.27 serving

When I was living in Baton Rouge, there was a restaurant called Ninfa, where spicy pickles and other vegetables were served as appetizers. Practically every time I went there, I was spoiling my appetite for those pickles before I even ordered an appetizer. So when I saw this post Ninfa spicy pickled carrots I was very, very excited about The Homesick Texan. I did not have all the ingredients in that recipe, but the version I made below is still Amazing, I literally can not stop eating them.

What’s in a spicy carrot?

These spicy carrots are “quick pickles”, not fermented pickles, so they start with vinegar. This special salt water includes white vinegar, salt, pepper, oregano, cumin oil. To add even more flavor, the carrots are pickled together with the red onions and jalapeno. The original recipe I used for inspiration included garlic, but I completely forgot to add mine, so if you have one, add some cloves of fresh garlic as well.

How much is marinated carrots?

These delicious spicy carrots will refrigerate for about 3-4 weeks.

What else can I add?

I’m dying to add all sorts of other vegetables to my spicy pickles next time. I think the little cauliflower blooms will just be incredible there, but it would be nice to try sliced ​​radish, green beans or maybe even a mini bell pepper.

Sliced ​​carrot, onion և jalapeno.

Start by slicing 1 pound of carrot (about 8 carrots), ½ red onion և one jalapeno. I like to cut carrots diagonally to make them more interesting.

Salt ingredients in a saucepan.

Make salt water by adding 1 cup of water, 2 cups of white vinegar, 1 cup of cooking oil, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper. Bring the crop to a boil.

The vegetables were added to the brine.

Add sliced ​​vegetables in boiling salted water (carefully) and boil for about 5 minutes. You do not want the carrots to become too soft or too discolored.
