Quick Pickled Asparagus

DH would like some pickled asparagus for snacking with his lunch. I know you can drop hard boiled eggs into pickle juice and they will pickle in a few days. Can I drop canned asparagus into a large jar of left over pickled brussel sprout juice and get a similar result? Any thoughts on why this won't work?

You can give it a try, it should would. Asparagus is in season now so you might be able to get some fresh and blanch it and try it.

I personally wouldn't do it with canned asparagus, it's already limp and quite tasteless in my opinion. Like Dave said, it should work with slightly cooked fresh asparagus however. Pickled brussel sprout juice? Did you pickle them yourself?

I was thinking, after my last post that you might be able to use a refrigerator pickle recipe and instead of using cucumbers, use the blanched fresh asparagus.

Refrigerator pickles are made and kept in the fridge. They are not meant to be long-term so there is no canning involved.

Great idea, Dave! I just found this, and I'm definitely going to do it.

Me too! Asparagus is still on sale here this week. (I'm stocking up every week and freezing it)

I use my grandmother's refrigerator pickle recipe with cucs in the summer, I'll give it a try. Kayelle,it's similar to what you found but no garlic or mustard seed, just dill, vinegar, sugar and water. Her trick was to boil, pour over, soak and repeat 3 times.

Thank you fr the ideas!

That sounds like the Scandinavian recipe for cucumber salad.

When you say repeat 3 times, do you mean that you drain the cukes, reheat the marinade and soak them again?
