Lemony Pickled Asaparagus

Lemony Pickled Asparagus - FromtheGardenTable.com I have to admit that I am a newbie to pickled asparagus.  But I figured that I love asparagus and I love most pickles, so chances were good that I would love these too!

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!

Can’t wait to serve them at Easter!

  2. I also never had pickled asparagus and I’m just getting used to it grilled. This is my twin’s favorite vegetable now and she loves grilling it in the summer. I can’t wait to plant my vegetable garden. Planting season is May 15th in Chicago.

    • I’ve only grown to love asparagus in the couple of years and now I can’t get enough of it! I’m excited because this year we will be planting it in our garden. We are about on the same schedule as you. I always plan on the weekend before Memorial day. Happy planting! It will be here before we know it (finally)!
