Cut any carrots thicker than a man’s thumb into halves or quarters lengthwise. These carrots are great after a week, but two full weeks will give you spicier carrots.

1/2 pound finger-sized baby carrots
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 peppercorns
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups apple cider vinegar (plus more, if necessary)

Arrange carrots in a quart-sized canning jar. Bring remaining ingredients just to a boil in a small saucepan. When the sugar has dissolved, pour the liquid and spices over the carrots. Add a bit of extra vinegar to cover the carrots, if necessary, and let chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks.
