Pickled Carrot + Cumin Ribbons

Hello my lovelies! I have been meaning to share this recipe since I first made it when my friends came over for the scandi mid-winter feast. I was playing around with a different pickle to add to the snack line-up and there were extra carrots lying around (which also motivated this carrot dip). Simple pickles are so easy to make. If you stick to small batches that will live in the fridge, there’s no need to follow full canning processes. We are going to make thin ribbons of the carrots. We want a little crunch but not hard chunky pieces. The thin slices are also easier for the pickle brine to penetrate. I just use a vegetable peeler to make the ribbons. When I get close to the end and it’s hard to peel, I just eat the leftover piece of carrot. No point wasting it. I wash the carrots but don’t actually peel them before slicing. These pickles are a great snacking pickle and also make the perfect addition to a spread with breads and cheeses. You can also finely slice the pickled ribbons and add them to a coleslaw or salad for a spot of bright acidity.
