carrot pickle recipe

I just wanted to thank the poster of the "Quick Carrot Pickle" recipe - they
are delicious! I would imagine that other vegies would be great pickled this
way, too - cauliflower comes to mind.  Also, a few shakes of red pepper
could add some heat if desired.

Here's the recipe in case anyone missed it:


Pungent and spicy with a hint of heat,  
these crispy chips are absolutely addictive. 

1/2 cup cider vinegar 
1 tablespoon granulated sugar 
1 garlic clove, halved 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds 
1 bay leaf 
4 medium carrots, pared and sliced 1/8 inch thick 

In a medium nonreactive saucepan, add vinegar, sugar, 
garlic, salt, mustard seeds and bay leaf; bring to a 
boil.  Stir in sliced carrots, cover and return to a 
boil.  Reduce heat to low; simmer until carrots are  
softened, but still crisp, 8 - 10 minutes. 

Rinse carrots in colander under cold running water; 
remove bay leaf and serve. 

Serving: generous 1/2 cup
