This amount of brine would be good for up to one bunch of asparagus.
Small Batch Overnight Pickled Asparagus
1/2 to 1 small bunch very thin asparagus, washed and dryed, ends trimmed and spears cut into 3 pieces
1 C water
1/4 C cider vinegar
1 Tblsp sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
1/2 tsp mustard seed
1/4 tsp dill weed
- Bring water, vinegar, sugar and salt to a boil. Remove from heat.
- Place asparagus, garlic, mustard seed and dill weed in bowl.

- Refrigerate overnight (at least), stirring occasionally (I use a Lock-N-Lock and just flip the bowl upside down)-enjoy!
