Mustard Pickles
  Re: (...)
Last week I thought I was all done putting up pickles, but after talking to a neighbor who mentioned she used to love mustard pickles but can't find them anymore, of course, I had to come in and google.

Does anyone know what Chris might have been talking about? I did find one recipe that I think I'll try, but if any of you has a proven one I'd rather go with that.

This is the one I found -

Old-fashioned Mustard Pickle

2 quarts soft water
1/2 cup salt
2 cups peeled pickling onions
2 cups pickling cucumbers
3 large cucumbers
2 cups green tomatoes
1 pint celery -- chopped
1 sweet red pepper -- chopped and seeded
1 sweet green pepper -- chopped and seeded
1 medium cauliflower -- cut into florets
For the sauce
1/2 cup flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric
1 quart cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons celery seeds

Make a brine by mixing 1/2 cup salt and 2 quarts soft water in a large bowl.

In the water, soak the onions, pickling cucumbers, large cucumbers and green tomatoes overnight.
The next day, drain the vegetables.

Cut the large cucumbers and green tomatoes into thick slices.

Cook the onions and cauliflower in boiling water until they are barely tender.

Drain and add to bowl.

Add celery and sweet peppers to bowl.

Now prepare the sauce by mixing the sauce ingredients in a large pot.

Cook, stirring until smooth and thickened.

When the sauce is boiling, stir in the vegetables.

Just heat through-- do not cook the vegetables.

Spoon immediately into freshly scrubbed pint jars. Make sure the vegetables are covered in hot mustard sauce and seal.

Submitter's note:
This is one of my mother's recipes. I have never made it but I certainly remember eating it! The pickles are very tart but tasty for anyone who likes mustard.

I haven't made them in years. I don't have all my canning books here, but I'll go through the ones I have.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

good! Does the one I posted sound like what you made in the past??
