Pickled Asparagus Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)

Didn't use dill seed and accidentally added crushed red peppers to the boiling liquid and not to each jar. These had a very nice mix of sweet and tart. Next time I'll use larger jars, add more onion, a couple slivers of garlic and I think red bell pepper would be a nice addition.

This may be common canning knowledge...but I didn't know this: Be sure to pack the asparagus tightly in the jars. If you don't, you run the risk of the asparagus overcooking during the 10-minute processing time. I added a crushed garlic clove to the bottom of each jar. Otherwise, no changes to the recipe. The pickling juice had a great flavor!

Mom wanted some pickled asparagus. I could not find what she wanted at the store, but the asparagus was on sale. Never canned a thing in my life but these turned out GREAT. Mom loved them. My Mom turned 92 this year and if she wants something I try to get it for her. The whole family loved them. Very easy to do.

turned out great. I had 5 lbs of asparagus from the farmer's market and no idea what to do with any of it. I pickled half (the skinnier ones) using this recipe. I used fresh dill from teh garden in place of dill seed and I also doubled the recipe. So good! Especially in out bloody mary's.

I've been making these for years, ever since we had them as a garnish in a Bloody Mary drink in Hawaii. Do pick smallest diameter spears you can find. I also put several crushed cloves of garlic and more red pepper flakes in the bottom of the jars. Makes a wonderful item to tuck into a gift basket, or to give away at the holidays, long after asparagus season is gone.
