ICE BOX PICKLES
Appetizers
Contributed by: Marty Gardner
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups seasoned rice wine vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 4-5 very thin ginger root slices
  • 1 small hot red pepper
  • 2-4 cloves garlic, partially halved
  • Cilantro
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 cup each carrots, jicama, cucumbers, scallions
In a small non-reactive saucepan, heat the vinegar, water, ginger root slices, pepper, garlic and salt to a gentle boil. Remove from heat and set aside.
Peel the carrots, jicama and cucumbers. Place the green parts of the scallions briefly into boiling salted water to blanch them, then cool in ice water. Slice the jicama and carrots into batons. Quarter, seed and slice the cucumbers lengthwise and then in halves.
Place vegetables into room temperature marinade along with several sprigs of cilantro. The carrots and jicama may be covered with warm marinade to soften them.
Chill, covered, until ready to use, two hours to overnight, but no longer
