Does anyone have a recipe for 7 day pickles?
By 2rbenz from Downers grove, IL
Are you talking about made from scratch kind, or the one using store bought pickles? My sis in law makes some using store bought hamburger dill slices, and they are awesome!
Yes, I am looking to make them from scratch I hope someone has the recipe. My grandma used to make them and boy I wish I had her recipe they were so good.
This is a recipe I got from Nancy's Kitchen, her newsletter. I cannot vouch for this yet because I am, with my homeaide, in the process of making them right now.
Almost Instant Pickles recipe
1 pound cucumbers, sliced
3 tsps salt
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp pickling spices or mustard seeds
4 cloves garlic sliced
1. Place sliced cucumbers in a clean glass jar. Combine remaining ingredients in saucepan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat and let cool.
2. Pour cooled liquid over cucumbers. Add water if needed to almost fill jar. (Leave a little room at the top.)
#Gently stir. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour until chilled.
Hope they turn out for you.
This recipe is from my hubby's great grandmother and is the one we make every year. They are the old fashioned crock pickles. Makes approximately 4 quarts that may be kept in the refrigerator indefinitely.
I use the big plastic barrel pretzel containers for mine.
Take 5 Lbs of cucumbers, sliced 1/2" thick and place in a crock.
Add 1 cup pickling salt with enough water to cover.
Cover and let sit for 24 hours then drain off water.
In a saucepan combine:
1 quart white vinegar
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pickling spice
2 teaspoons celery seeds
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
1 teaspoon alum
Cook until sugar dissolves and mixture becomes somewhat syrupy.
Pour syrup over pickles and cover.
If there is not enough of the syrup to cover you may add additional vinegar to cover.
After 24 hours add 1 cup of sugar.
Repeat adding 1 cup of sugar every 24 hours for the next five days.
