Carrot Pickles, Sweet (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: about 12

3 pounds carrots
3 cups apple cider vinegar
1 cup water
1-1/2 to 2 cups turbinado or other natural sugar
1 tablespoon whole allspice
1 tablespoon whole cloves
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1 stick cinnamon, broken
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 orange, thinly sliced

Scrub carrots, cut into sticks.

In a large pot, combine water, sugar, salt, 1 cup vinegar, and spices; bring to boil and simmer covered 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, pack carrots into hot pint jars (you will need three) and tuck in an orange slice. Add the rest of vinegar to your spice brine, bring to boil and remove from heat.

Strain this boiling syrup into jars leaving 1/8" head space. Seal immediately with hot sterilized (boiled) lids.
