In this house WE LOVE PICKLES!
We love them so much that a few years ago we started making our own.
It is simple enough to do. Plus, we are in control of the healthy ingredients we use and the kids can help ... so why not!
Here is how we make 'em.
Into a large (24 ounce) mason jar we shove:
3 big kirbie cucumbers, sliced
1 small onion, chunked
3-4 garlic scapes, chunked
Your mason jar should be full.
In a sauces pan, we heat up:
1 1/2 cups of white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3/4 cup of sugar (1 cup if you like them sweeter)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
What we do then:
We heat the saucepan ingredients until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Then we pour the vinegar mixture over vegetables in the canning jar. We leave the jar unopened on the counter until it cools to room temperature. Then we cover the jar and place it in the fridge.
Unfortunately we have to wait 24 hours before they are ready but then we devour them!
Perfect for summer! We hope you try then. If like this recipe or want to share one of your own, we hope you will do so in the Real Moms Collaborative!
