Easy Pickled Asparagus

Pick a peck of pickled … asparagus? Even though we’re not certain how much is in a peck, the answer is a resounding “Yes, please!” A happy harbinger of spring, asparagus comes into season from April until June. Pickling is a wonderful way to enjoy it a little bit longer. This recipe is super simple and turns out an exceptionally crisp veggie with slightly spicy, field-fresh flavor. Chop them into salads, add them to a charcuterie board as is or wrapped in thinly sliced meats, use them to stir a Bloody Mary or eat them straight out of the jar!Easy Pickled Asparagus in Mason Jar on White Countertop | Vitacost.com/blog
