Easy Peasy Pickled Asparagus

Christine NelsonIn my opinion, nothing means spring more than asparagus. It's the first thing to pop out of the ground for us to eat, because we don't have a greenhouse (yet!), and we are eating it like crazy right now.

I'm a huge fan of refrigerator pickles. They are super easy to make, taste delicious and in my experience are more crispy than ones I have canned. Plus, you can make them in super small batches. Easy peasy.

When I was trying to think of something different to do with some asparagus today I figured pickled ones would fit the bill. Anything pickled reminds me of summer and today was gorgeous and summery. A perfect combination.
