My mother-in-law Betty Duncan is a wonderful cook. She has collected recipes from her mother, grandmother, friends, and I swear the back of every can and box known to mankind. I have been going through some of her recipes and thought you guys might enjoy them too. Tell me if you have heard of this one.

How to Make Sunshine Pickles


  1. I know some of the measurements are vague, but I'm going to put down the way it is written. Have you ever tried to get exact measurement out of a grandmother and its usually a dab of this a pinch of that. Well they write it the same way. Here goes.
  2. Wash cucumbers and slice. Place in bottom of jar, next add dill weed, red hot pepper, 1 clove of garlic.. Pack cucumbers on top of mixture place 1/4 tsp alumn on top of cucumbers.. In pan place red vinegar, water, pickling salt, and bring to a rolling boil. Pour into jar to cover, I'm not sure if you need to cool the liquid or not. Screw lid down snug and seal.
  3. Place in sunshine for 14 days.
