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


  • 1I 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.
  • 2Wash 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.
  • 3Place in sunshine for 14 days.
