Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

This is rather hot and spicy but delicious served as a side!


8 Large carrots peeled & cut into large strips
2 red peppers seeded & sliced into strips
2 onions peeled and sliced
6 clove garlic peeled & chopped
2 tsp chili flakes ( or more if you like things hot)
1 Tbsp sugar
12 peppercorns
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Herbamare
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 apple cider vinegar

Place vinegar, water, sugar, salt, Herbamare and peppercorns into a pot and bring to the boil. Cut carrots into large strips. Heat a little oil and fry for a few minutes add the sliced onion, sliced garlic then add finally red peppers. Pour hot vinegar over the carrots and let it simmer for about 5min. Add the chili flakes and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it cool. Transfer into clean glass jars making sure that it in layers.

Store jars of pickled carrots in fridge and enjoy as a side dish with meat or a salad. If you can part with one of the jars, give one to your neighbor to enjoy.
