Default Made some pickles

Had a bunch of cucumbers that had gotten too big on the vine so I decided to make some red hot pickles. It was a 2 day process, but they are worth it. If anyone would like the recipe I will post it.

I would be curious to see this recipe. All the rain and my cucumbers are huge. I threw some out they were just too big.

I'd like to have a recipe too. I don't like the bread & butter pickles they make.

1. Peel and remove the seeds from cucumbers. Some people make round pickles, but I quarter mine lengthwise and cut in 3" pieces. The recipe calls for 7# of cucumber slices.
2. Mix 2 gallons of water with 2 cups of pickling lime in a large pot. Add cucumber and soak for 24 hours.
3. Pour off water and wash cucumbers. Cover with ice water and let stand for 3 hours. Pour off water.
4. Mix 1 1/2 cups of vinegar, 1 oz red food coloring and 2 tsp alum. Cover cucumbers with water and add mixture. Simmer for 2 hours. Pour off and discard.
5. Boil 2 1/2 cups of vinegar, 2 1/2 cups of water, 5# sugar, 12 cinnamon sticks and 10 oz of red hots candy. Pour over cucumbers and let stand at least 6 hours or overnight.
6. Boil cucumbers again for 30 minutes. Prepare pint jars. Place cucumber in jar and pour syrup in jar then seal.

This should make about 10 pints. Use granite ware pot, not aluminum.

I'd much rather just have a jar of yours. Sure would save me alot of time.

That sounds interesting! I only grew pickling cukes this year, as they DO make better pickles in my opinion. I've got 36 pints already put up. My plants are kinda wilting now, and the worms have finally shown up. I hate those little buggers. Anyway I am out of jars, and content. I have 3 jars of "fridge pickles" as well. Any more cukes will join them, if the worms don't get them first....LOL.

Every time I think of homemade pickles, I remember Aunt Bea's pickles that Andy and Barney gave away to unsuspecting travelers through Mayberry. I'm sure yours are much better.
