Wenona Flood's Recipes
Lois Hawkins Easy Sweet Pickles

This is a great recipe for anyone who has a garden that is abundantly producing cucumbers.  Putting them in jars like this is so easy and they can be finished later in the year when outside work isn't so demanding.

Cut up pickles into quart jar, finger size strips. To each jar add:

1 teaspoon salt             1 teaspoon alum

Fill jar with cold cider vinegar and put lid on. And after three months, open and drain well.


2 C. sugar                                       
2/3 C. water                       
1 teaspoon pickling spice

Let cool to lukewarm, then pour over cucumbers and close jar again. (If it gets cold, sugar will crystalize and you'll have to melt it again)  Turn jar over to encourage cucumbers to take sugar instead of it settling to the bottom.
