Mexican Pickled Carrots (Escabeche)

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by zeldaz51

Adapted from the Fresh Approach Cooking blog, I've added a couple of things to it. This is a refrigerated pickle, crisp, spicy, and addictive. It will keep a couple of months or longer in the fridge. The cooking time is the minimum refrigeration time for the pickle.

This recipe is the most similar one I could find to a escabeche I love from a taqueria I like. I tweaked it slightly by swapping the radish for cauliflower & adding some dry margoram. It came out delicious.
