bunny-tasticness (and pickled carrots)

Warning: the food-related content of the following blog is simply an excuse to post cute bunny pictures. Proceed at your own risk....

The other day I made this recipe, with some changes because about 2 months ago, we ordered pickled carrots at a restaurant and they were out, triggering a seemingly unquenchable craving. Good recipe (especially with my additions/substitutions) and I think the craving is tamed. However, Phina (aka, "big angry bunny") did not approve of my wasteful use of carrots...

Oh, yeah, the food....

Spicy Pickled Carrots
  • 2 lbs large carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch thick pieces
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled and diced
  • 1 large red onion, quartered and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 10 bay leaves, whole
  • 10peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 whole jalapeños, sliced widthwise
Spray a large saucepan with cooking spray and sauté the garlic and onions. Add in carrots and saute for 2-3 minutes. Carefully add in vinegar, peppercorns, salt, and and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes and then add water and jalapeños and bring to a simmer again for another 10 minutes.

Let it cool completely and then transfer the carrots and cooking liquid into a covered container and refrigerate overnight. Store the carrots in the liquid and use a slotted spoon to serve them. You may leave the bay leaves in the liquid to add to the flavor, but do not eat them!
