Pickling is an ancient technique, and is used in all cultures as a way to preserve food. In New York City where we are based, home pickling has become quite the thing. It’s so...

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pickling spice  (see Ann’s Tips)
  • 2 large carrots cut into long sticks, about 2 cups

Chef Tips

If you can’t find pickling spices at the store, the basic spices in most commercial blends are:

Bay leaves, black, white or green peppercorns; and mustard seeds.

To fine-tune the flavors you can add allspice berries; whole cloves, dill seeds, ground ginger – I could go on. The sky’s the limit. It all depends on what you’re in the mood for. Start out with the basics and take it from there.
