Mum's Sweet Mixed Pickles
As I got older she continued this little tradition every year xo
Now as I've mentioned in other recipes of hers, she didn't leave me with any methods of doing things, so I only have what I have and no personal knowledge (other than eating them lol)
I hope those of you who do can, try this. I think it's worth it!
- 1 gal
- mixed vegetables (cauliflower, small pickling onions, cucumbers)
- 1 gal
- 1 c
- pickling salt
- alum (a salt compound for firming and crisping pickles)
- 6 c
- white sugar
- 1 qt
- vinegar (4 cups)
- 2 Tbsp
- pickling spice (tied in a cheesecloth bag)
Mum used to slice the cucumbers in quarters - lengthwise, then cut those quarters into 1" pieces.
Boil one gallon of water then add 1 cup of pickling salt to it. Pour hot over vegetables and cover.
