DIRECTIONS

  • Combine vinegar, salt, sugar, garlic, spices and 2 cups water in a wide 4-5 quart pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add asparagus (if liquid doesn’t fully cover asparagus, add more water).
  • Simmer, stirring occasionally, until asparagus has faded to dull green and is tender-crisp, about 4-6 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add 2 cups of ice cubes to stop cooking. Let stand for 30-60 minutes; the flavor becomes more intense the longer it stays in the brine.
  • Drain, and refrigerate. Eat within a few days.
