Pickled Asparagus II

Recipe by  

"Ok not quite dill pickles, but still good. These pickled asparagus spears are not spicy and have a flavor all their own. I use them in Bloody Marys at my restaurant."

Directions

  1. Trim the bottoms off of the asparagus, and pack loosely into a 1 quart jar.
  2. Combine the water, white wine vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, jalapeno, thyme sprigs, bay leaves, salt and whole peppercorns in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, and boil hard for 1 minute.
  3. Pour the hot liquid over the asparagus in the jar, filling to cover the tips of the asparagus. Cover, and cool to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator for 24 hours to blend flavors before serving.

This is a good recipe, spicy, but not too hot. It took 2# asparagus to make 1 qt.Didn't have white wine vinegar, so used red wine vinegar. Would advise to use a tall jar so you don't have to trim so much off bottom. Will try this with green beans later. Be sure to use a wide mouth jar.

I boiled the asparagus for a minute before putting it in the jar. I wanted the asparagus to be somewhat soft. I thought it tasted a bit too much like Old Bay. I would definitely cut back on that. I don't know if I will make it again, but it was good.

Very good -different from the usual pickled vegetables I've made. Use the smallest diameter spears you can so they will be tender. Better to let sit a week or more for flavors to develop.

Asparagus is my hubby's favorite vegie so I gave this a shot. I'm happy to say that he headed right for the fridge every night after work to munch. Thanks so much!

I had some pretty thick asaragus so I blanched it for two and a half minutes then plunged in an ice bath. And my asparagus wouldn't fit in the jar, so I just put it in a ziploc. These were good, probably would increase the thyme and garlic since I didn't taste it and maybe cut back on the sugar. A little too sweet. I used dried cayenne pepper for the jalapeno. I made this recipe and the "Pickled Asparagus" with dill. I like the flavor of this one. The other one added onion which I will add to this recipe.
