Thanks for sharing this recipe. Unfortunately I didn't really like how the carrots turned out. I like the dill taste but don't like how I could still taste the sweetness of the carrots. I hoped that if I let the carrots sit in the juice longer they would have a stronger dill taste :(
I wasn't sure what I would make of this recipe because it sounded pretty unusual but I was intrigued because I like both pickles and carrots. I was also drawn to it for the economics of using something most people throw away, such a pickle juice. I am glad I tried it because it turned about to be a good and new taste experience. The recipe was easy and I enjoyed the fresh tasting zing of the carrots. I have been eating them alongside a sandwich at lunch like I would normally do with pickles. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
