Ooh. These sound like they would make a nice change from wasabi-mashed potatoes as a side dish for the "teriyaki" salmon I make when I'm feeling uncreative.

If you love pickles like this, you need to get yourself over to Japan. They're nuts about pickles - so to speak - and take them to friends as we would a bottle of wine. As in your recipe, they're not vinegary or briney, and all the ones I've ever tried were absolutely delicious, a real taste revelation. Sounds as though I need to get a hold of that book...

The pickled carrots sound delicious. Love your blog and read it every day. You inspired me to subscribe to a CSA, which begins next month, and I can't wait!

Check out this site: http://citypicklers.com/

I talked to the woman who created it when she was just starting the project as her master's thesis. Came out pretty damn cool.

Pyewacket: Cool link! Thanks. I never thought I was much of a pickle girl. I mean, I'll eat one if placed in front of me, but I never, ever think: God, I could really go for a pickle. Not even when I was pregnant. So, I've been pleasantly surprised by my recent pickling efforts.

Jane: Wow. That's very cool. Thanks so much for your comment. I hope you love your CSA as much as I love mine (well, maybe a little less).

Aforkfulofspaghetti: I wouldn't argue with a trip to Japan. Someday. In the meantime, yes, this is a great book. I also made the pickled turnips with fennel and star anise, but I let my turnips get a little too soft before I got around to using them. The resulting pickles aren't as crisp as I'd like, but they still taste great. I also have my eye on the pickled cauliflower with raisins and caramelized onions. Lordy.

Adele: Indeed they would. It's nice to have a no-cook vegetable dish ready in a jar for my lazy moments.

Go team carrot! Yeah!

Mmmm... Sounds and looks delicious!

Yum, those carrots look quite alright with me! I wholeheartedly support your pickling craze.
