Hardly a less threatening vegetable exists for pickling, and hardly a prettier pickle can be made. The orange of the carrots turns a vibrant hue in pickling, and the chili-zested coins can be pinched easily into a mound to give a plate a little dimension. With the flavors of ginger and fresh orange zest in addition, this is new life for an overly familiar vegetable.

For best flavor, make the carrot pickle a day or two in advance. It keeps nicely refrigerated for up to two weeks.
