NOTES

This recipe was designed as a topping for our Smoky Pork Burgers or Smoky Quinoa Burgers featured in Spice Club, Savory’s spice of the month club.



DIRECTIONS

Place apples and carrots in a heatproof bowl. Mix vinegar, water, sugar, and Pickling Spice in a medium saucepan. (Tip: If you don’t want Pickling Spice pieces floating in your quick pickles later, place spices in a muslin bag or tie them into a piece of cheesecloth.) Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Pour hot mixture (including spices) over apples and carrots. Let sit for 30 min. at room temperature to cool. Transfer to a quart-size jar, cover, and refrigerate until chilled. Best served after 24 hours in the fridge.



SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Serve atop any of your other favorite burgers, toss into salads, or use as a condiment in sandwich wraps.
