EASY CUCUMBERS PICKLES
7 cups sliced cucumbers (do not peel)
1/2 cup chopped peppers
1 cup sliced onions
1 cup vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 t celery seed
Put in large pan. Cover with water. Add 3 T of salt. Let stand for 1 hour.
Mix 2 cups sugar, 1 cup vinegar and 1t celery seed. Drain water from cucumbers and put in 2 quart jars and pour mixture over them, let stand for 3 days before eating. Will keep for weeks.
Okay, that is how the recipe read. I changed it a little.
I used 8 cups of sliced cucumbers and I did not put in the peppers or onions. I heated up the sugar and vinegar mixture until it dissolved. I had to make more of the sugar and vinegar mixture to fill up the 2 quart jars (that may be because I did not add the peppers and onions). I doubled the mixture and it made too much, so I think 3 cups of sugar and 1 1/2 cups of vinegar would make enough.
I really liked the flavor. My husband said it tasted like old timey pickles.
It has been raining this morning. I sure hope it keeps up. We are so dry here!
I saw this and just had to take a picture. Do any of you farmers know what this is? It looked like it had the initials HH on it.
Hope everyone has a nice weekend and I promise to get caught up with my blogging and comments.
By the way, it has already stopped raining.
