These pickled carrots and daikon were the perfect complement to the crispy tofu nuggets I made for dinner the other night. I love anything pickled, and this was no exception. So delicious and a ton of flavor!

I recently got into canning, so this pickled carrots recipe was right up my alley. Simple, not a lot of fuss, and delicious afterwards.
