The trick to pickled carrots is cooking them just long enough to retain a harvest-fresh "snap." These tangy treats are terrific for perking up a buffet table or relish tray or serving alongside a hearty sandwich. —Cecilia Grondin, Grand Falls, New Brunswick

"I've been making a similar recipe for years using a sugar substitute. I don't use mustard seed and I use 2 cinnamon sticks and 6 cloves. I keep a container of them in the fridge for a quick snack or to serve with sandwiches."
