RECIPE: quick carrot pickle chip (should already be in archive)

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.

     Subject: 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

     Hi everyone,

     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.
