Preserving/Canning

5th Step Of The Blind Pig & The Acorn’s Pickle Along

Today-we finally get to make the yummy syrup that goes in the pickles. First drain the sliced cucumbers-discarding the liquid. Important to drain them very well.

While the cucumbers are draining-you can mix up the other ingredients. Add the following to a large stock pot:

5 quarts of sugar

3 pints of apple cider vinegar

6 to 8 small cinnamon sticks

2 tablespoons whole cloves

2 tablespoons celery seed

Bring the mixture to a boil. While the mixture is heating up-place the well drained cucumbers back into the crock.

Pour the boiling mixture over the cucumbers.

Replace your plate and weight to submerge the cucumbers under the liquid. Cover and let sit overnight.

    Another Mary here:)
    I love this blog. I love the music too!
    I have never heard of cinnamon in pickles, but I am sure it is very good. Cincinnati chili has a touch of cinnamon in it, so I am told.
    Keeping on the sunnyside sounds like something I would say. Are you a person that everyone looks to for a sunny face? I ask my friends, “What are you doing to do when I am down?” They reply, “You are not allowed to!”
    Blessings to you,

    Tipper,
    I well remember making pickles in a crock. Haven’t done it in years but really should get some canning done.
    Read the post below. The boys and I planted four tomato plants and have had dozens of tomatoes off them and much more to come. Yes, a very good crop this year.
    Blessings,
    Mary
