About this recipe: I love anything pickled, so I tried asparagus with a touch of chilli! You'll need a tall, wide jar so you can keep the stalks upright.
This is a good recipe, spicy, but not too hot. It took 2# asparagus to make 1 qt.Didn't have white wine vinegar, so used red wine vinegar. Would advise to use a tall jar so you don't have to trim so much off bottom. Will try this with green beans later. Be sure to use a wide mouth jar. - 04 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good -different from the usual pickled vegetables I've made. Use the smallest diameter spears you can so they will be tender. Better to let sit a week or more for flavors to develop. - 04 Jun 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I boiled the asparagus for a minute before putting it in the jar. I wanted the asparagus to be somewhat soft. I thought it tasted a bit too much like Old Bay. I would definitely cut back on that. I don't know if I will make it again, but it was good. - 30 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
