Sliced Sweet Lunch Pickles


This is an old recipe found in my grandmother’s recipe box.

Ingredients:

20 medium-sized cucumbers, cut 1/2″ thick

Pre-Brine Solution:
5 cups water
3 cups cider vinegar
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. alum

========

2 tbs. minced onion, per jar

Brine Solution:
2 qt. cider vinegar
1 pint water
3 cups sugar
2 tsp. celery seed
2 tsp. mustard seed
2 tsp. turmeric

 

Directions:

Mix pre-brine ingredients thoroughly, bring to a boil, add the cucumbers, then remove from heat and let stand for 30 minutes.

Drain, then pack cucumbers into sterile jars. Add the minced onion to each jar and fill with brine to the rim. Hot seal.

THIS RECIPE DOES NOT REQUIRE A HOT WATER BATH.
