(by Shirley McNevich)

1lb. carrot sticks
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 TBSP dill seeds
1 1/2 TBSP salt + 1 tsp. salt
2 garlic cloves (crushed)

Fill a pot 3/4 full with water and 1 tsp. salt--bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the carrot sticks--cook/stir for 1 minute, then rinse the carrots with cold water and drain them. In a saucepan over medium heat add the water, vinegar, dill seeds, 1 1/2 TBSP salt and crushed garlic cloves--cook/stir until boiling, then cook/stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Place drained carrot sticks in a bowl, then pour the hot vinegar mixture over the carrots. Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture for 24 hours before eating the carrots.
