Pickled Asparagus with Dill
Eastern Oregon around the Snake River grows sweet asparagus. The Froerer family farm grows and packs fancy asparagus for the fresh markets to ship to eastern markets. Some of it gets into the Pretty Pickle jars after it gets hauled back to my kitchens in Salem.
Long 6" spears are hand packed into tall jars with garlic and dill and covered with a simple brine of vinegar, water, salt and a tad bit of sugar to bring out a bit of the natural sweetness of the asparagus. Then jars are processed in a hot water bath similar to what you would do in your own kitchen. Since the asparagus are cooled quickly, they retain their crispness while turning the olive green of pickle. Useful as a stir stick in your favorite Bloody Mary, as a garnish or on that relish tray at the next holiday party or for a low fat snack or as a hostess gift for any occasion.
