I am looking for a pickled asparagus recipe that is not sweet and is hot. In looking at Ball's pick a vegetable dill pickle recipe, it has more vinegar and less sugar than any of the other recipes that I can find (vinegar is 4 to 1 with water)
I would like to omit all if not most of the sugar. Safe?
I would like WAY more heat. With this high of a vinegar to water ratio is it ok to add more hot pepper and or garlic?
