- 12 pounds asparagus
- PER JAR you need
- 1 Teaspoon Dill Seed
- ¼ Teaspoon Dill Weed
- 2 Smashed Garlic Cloves
- 1 Teaspoon Whole Peppercorns
- ½ teaspoon Celery Seed
- ½ teaspoon Mustard Seed
- FOR THE BRINE
- 8 cups White Vinegar at least 5% acidity
- 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
- 10 cups Water
- 1 cup Canning Salt
- 3 Tablespoons Sugar
- Prepare & sterilize the water bath canner, jars, lids and bands according to your manufacturer instructions.
- Wash and cut the asparagus to size according to your jars. I found using one and a half pint jars will fit asparagus nicely without with minimal waste. see note
- In each sterilized jar, combine the herbs and garlic.
- Place the asparagus in the jar, head size down.
- In a nonreactive pot, make the brine by combining the water, vinegar, salt and sugar. Heat to a boil over medium heat.
- Pour the brine over the asparagus and remove any air bubbles. Be sure to add enough liquid to maintain a ½ inch headspace.
- Secure your lids and bands and tighten to just figure tip tight. Place prepared jars into the boiling water bath. Once a rolling boil is maintained, process jars for 10 minutes at elevations lower than 1000 feet. Anything above that add 5 minutes to your rolling water bath.
- Turn off heat, remove canner lid.
- Allow the jars to sit in the water bath for five additonal minutes after turning the heat off to allow for proper a proper seal.
- Place jars on a heatproof countertop and allow them to sit there untouched for 24 hours.
- Remove the bands and label the jars. Store in a dark dry place.
Note place your asparagus head down so when you pull the asparagus out of the jar you do not break the head off
