Daily Canning

Daily Canning

I just tried the first jar of these pickles, and they are delicious! So here is the recipe!

Sweet Pickles!

lemon cucumbers
red pepper
mustard seed
celery seed
garlic cloves
grape leaves

First combine:

cucumbers sliced thin
half the quantity of cucumbers in thinly sliced onions.
a couple of red peppers, as many as you want to add color.

Mix cucumbers, onions, and peppers in a bowl with salt. Let stand for 2 hours. Drain.

Combine vinegar and water and sugar in these proportions:
2 vinegar 2 water 1.5 sugar

Add mustard seed and celery seed in equal proportions and half as much tumeric

Bring to a boil.


In the hot sterilized jars add two garlic cloves, one grape leaf, pack full of cucumber/onion/pepper mix, fill with the boiling vinegar mixture, leaving 1/4 inch head room, then put in a canning bath for ten minutes.

These are SO GOOD. These should become a yearly standard.
