Sunshine In A Jar
Fresh Dill Canned Carrots are my latest creation.
It seems like I am keeping my sanity by standing at the stove. I have been wanting to be creative and honestly somedays the only time I get is while making dinner. So I am putting this here mostly so I don't forget that I made them in the first place. Haha.
Matt asked me last night why I had canned carrots instead of other things that are hard to come by out of season. I couldn't at that time explain it was more in the creative flavoring and pretty optics of the jar. I had been thinking all week about how I could jar up some sunshine, and this what I came up with.
For the brine I boiled: 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup white vinegar, 1 cup cider vinegar, 2 cups water.
