Sweet Pickle Sticks

This recipe came from a Kerr canning book.
  • Use fresh, firm medium cucumbers.

  • Wash and cut them into sticks. Pour boiling water over them and let stand 4-5 hours.

  • Drain and pack solidly into sterilized Kerr Jars.
  • Make a solution of:
3-3/4 cup vinegar
3 cups sugar 3 tablespoons salt 4- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed 4-1/2 teaspoons turmeric 3/4 teaspoon mustard seed.

  • Boil the solution for 5 minutes. Pour boiling hot over the cucumbers to within 1/2 inch of top of jar. Pt on cap, screw band firmly tight. Process in Boiling Water Bath 5 minutes. Solution fills 6 pint jars.
* Note: If sweeter pickle is desired, double measurement of sugar. The price of a jar of supermarket sweet pickles is almost $4.00 a jar. I usually use sweet pickles in my potato salad, tuna salad and chicken salad.
