With the spring almost here, and new spring asparagus just starting to hit the stores I knew it was time to make some.
I researched a number of recipes and there were so many out there I just didn’t know which one to go for.
There were ones that were more of a traditional pickle and ones that were heavier on the lemon, but this one had just a peel of lemon rind added in, so the lemon flavor is there but light. Figured it was a good one to start out with!
Very easy recipe too. The only time consuming part is cutting all the asparagus to perfectly fit into the jars, making sure they do not go above the top. I also got to use my new homemade Pickling Spice!
After only a day and a half in the jar, I just couldn’t wait. I had to open one up and give it a try. Soooo good! and with quite a bit of tang to them. I really could keep nibbling at them all evening, but I will try to restrain myself!
