My mother and grandmother made these for years (at least 50 years that I know of). I thought I had lost the recipe until my husband found an old, what I thought was gone forever, recipe box. I couldn't get enough of these when I was a kid. I will be making these next summer.

How to Make Mustard Pickles


  1. Using a plastic bowl, mix sugar, salt and mustard then add vinegar. Use a wooden spoon.
    It is IMPORTANT that you do NOT use any metal utensils or bowls.
  2. Wash and dry the cucumbers and pack in jars.
  3. Pour mixture over cucumbers and seal jars. Store jars on shelf.
  4. Turn and shake jars daily. Pickles can be eaten in 2 weeks but are best if you can wait 4-5 weeks.
  5. Keep any leftover vinegar/mustard mixture in the vinegar jar and you can use it next time you make pickles.
