We call them dilly beans and I make them every year! Nothing better in a Bloody Mary than a couple of dilly beans...

I'm trying to come up with something to do with the carrots that retains their shape. I could probably just roast them [sign in to see URL] them! Grilled carrots are incredibly delicious. They would make great shish kebabs!
