For an interesting mix of flavors, try using different colors and varieties of carrots in this Ginger Pickled Carrots Recipe. And once you’ve eaten all the carrots, you can use the pickling liquid as a salad dressing or marinade.

Ingredients:

1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups carrots, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
One 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick pieces 

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar, vinegar, water and salt to a slow boil. Add the carrots and ginger, cover and simmer until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a container with a lid and chill at least 2 hours. The pickled carrots will keep for up to a week.
