Sous Vide Pickled Asparagus with Lemon

Sous vide pickled asparagus is the perfect summer (or anytime) snack! This pickled asparagus recipe results in crunchy, lemony, bright pickles that you won’t be able to stop reaching for. Even better, they’re super quick to whip up!


– 1 bunch of asparagus, woody ends removed – 1 peeled and crushed clove of garlic per jar – 2 pieces of lemon rind per jar – 3 sprigs of dill per jar – 2 cups apple cider vinegar – 1 1/2 cups warm water – 1/4 cup lemon juice – 3 tbsp kosher salt – 1 tbsp sugar

Fill a large stock pot or container with water. Preheat using sous vide to 145 degrees F.

Add stalks of asparagus, garlic, lemon rind, and dill to pint-sized jars. Do not pack tightly: asparagus should be able to move around freely.

Whisk together vinegar, water, lemon juice, salt, and sugar until dissolved. Pour over asparagus in jars.

Use undamaged lids to close jars. Close to “finger tight” (you should be able to easily unscrew with our finger tips). Drop jars carefully into water. Jars should be completely submerged.
