Pickled Carrot Sticks (Gourmet Magazine)

“This is great as a party appetizer, a snack, or as a cocktail garnish. Recipe was developed by Zanne Stewart, Gourmet's executive food editor, and was printed in the magazine in both 1985 and 2003. I reduced the amount of dill as I found the original amount (1 1/2 T of dill seeds) too strong. Best of all, they don't need to be sealed in sterilized jars, so they're a snap to make. Carrots keep, chilled in an airtight container, for 1 month. You can use peeled or unpeeled carrots. It also works really well with other vegetables, including green beans, cauliflower, and celery.”
