Pickled Veggies

What You’ll Need
  • 2 large seedless cucumbers
  • 1 medium carrot
  • ¾ cup rice vinegar
  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
What to Do
  1. Ask an adult to help peel the cucumbers if desired. Trim the ends, halve lengthwise, and cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick slices. Peel the carrot and cut into ¼-inch slices.
  2. Put the vegetables in a 1-quart glass jar or other acid-proof container with a tight-fitting lid.
  3. To make the brine, put the vinegar, hot water, sugar, and salt in a heat-proof bowl. Stir the brine until the sugar and salt dissolve. Let it cool for 15 minutes. Then pour it into the jar.
