Spicy Pickled Carrots
For Test Kitchen director Robby Melvin, it’s not Thanksgiving until his Granny’s “old-school” relish tray hits the table. The tray is packed with a colorful array of pickled vegetables, including carrots. Here’s his updated take on her recipe, kicked up with crushed red pepper, onion powder, and mustard seeds. If you want a colorful relish tray, look for rainbow blend carrots at your grocery store. You can also use peeled baby carrots in a pinch.
