This is a delightful pickle that only needs to sit overnight. You'll need a tall, wide jar so you can keep the stalks upright.
Used different ingredients. This is a good recipe, spicy, but not too hot. It took 1kg 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. - 29 Sep 2008
I boiled the asparagus for a minute before putting it in the jar. I wanted the asparagus to be somewhat soft. I would definitely cut back on the spice.. I don't know if I will make it again, but it was good. - 29 Sep 2008
Asparagus is my hubby's favourite 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! - 29 Sep 2008
