Here's a yummy and easy recipe for carrots. I think it's in the
archive already. The only catch it that if you put it out on a table
with things, it might be wise to let people know that they are spicy.

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:
QUICK CARROT PICKLE CHIPS
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.

Just thought I'd update you on the evolution of the quick carrot
pickles - I added red pepper flakes and cauliflower, and got raves
from guests. The resultant pickles are also a nice mixture of orange
and white - very pretty.
