4 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into even-sized, 4-inch sticks
dill or lovage sprigs
18 peppercorns
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
5 cloves garlic, peeled and thickly sliced
3-1/2 cups white or cider vinegar
2-1/2 cups water
1/3 cup honey, or 1/2 cup sugar


Stand the carrots upright in six hot, sterilized pint canning jars. Add a sprig of dill or lovage to each jar. Divide up the peppercorns, mustard seeds, and garlic; sprinkle equal amounts into each jar. Boil together the vinegar, water, and honey or sugar until the sugar dissolves. Pour the hot liquid over the carrots, covering them completely. Seal and refrigerate for at least 1 week before using. The carrots will keep for at least a month, refrigerated.
