How To Make Pickled Carrots

These carrots look like ordinary baby carrots, but they are far from ordinary – they are pickled!  You can marinate lots of vegetables – not just cucumbers – and that includes carrots 🙂

If you like crunchy pickles, you will love pickled carrots.  Can you imagine the CRUNCH?  Pickled carrots are super crunchy, and they taste great pickled!

Recipe: Pickled Carrots Recipe


  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 1 lb baby carrots
  • 8 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 small bunch fresh dill
  • 10 black peppercorns

Instructions How To Make Pickled Carrots

  • Prepare a 2-liter (half-gallon) glass jar with a lid.
  • Put half of baby carrots in the jar, then put the dill, garlic cloves and black peppercorns on top of them, and then put the remaining carrots on top.
  • Make a marinade: in a pot, mix water, salt and sugar. Bring it to a boil.
  • Remove the marinade from heat and add vinegar and oil, then mix it.
  • Carefully pour the hot marinade into the jar with carrots.
  • Leave the jar with carrots to marinate at room temperature for 2 days, after that move pickled carrots to the refrigerator.

Enjoy these yummy crunchy pickled carrots!  They will keep in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks.  By the way, garlic turns purple in the marinade, so don’t get alarmed – it’s perfectly normal 🙂  Also, check out my pickled zucchini recipe – yes, you can pickle zucchini too and it tastes really good!  I’ve also pickled cauliflower before using the same recipe and it turned out really well!
