My mission for the farmers market was to find some asparagus. I don't know how it happens, but every year I manage to miss asparagus season! Now don't get me wrong, I buy it and eat it (because yum!), but I always mean to pickle it and somehow don't think about it until just after the season has ended. I was not about to let that happen again this year! The asparagus I brought home was gorgeous, and pickling it was a lot of fun!
|Cutting to size for pint jars.|
|Time for a rinse!|
|Packing jars with blanched asparagus and pickling liquid.|
|Jars sitting after their water bath. Waiting to hear that little *ping* to know it all went well (it did!).|
I can't wait to pop open a jar in a month or two and invite some friends over for Bloody Marys.
Hope you all had a fantastic Sunday!
