INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tablespoon brown mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 2 teaspoons black peppercorns
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 4 medium carrots, sliced paper thin
  • 1 medium shallot, sliced paper thin
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Toast mustard seeds, coriander seeds, and peppercorns in a medium saucepan over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add vinegar, water, salt, and sugar and bring to a rapid simmer. Meanwhile, place carrots and shallot in a 1-quart heatproof container with a tightfitting lid.
  2. Once the vinegar mixture simmers, pour over vegetables, making sure to cover them completely. Allow mixture to come to room temperature, about 1 hour, then cover. Store in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours before using.
