Crystal Pickles Recipe ClippingRecipes for Your Scrapbook
By Mrs. Harvey F. Rostiser.

This recipe for a sweet pickle will be crisp and delicious. It was given to me by Mrs. George Flora, Niles, Mich.

Crystal Pickles.

Put 25 cucumbers of dill size in a brine strong enough to float an egg. (Two cups coarse salt to one gallon water). Place a plate on top and weigh it down. Let stand two weeks. Take out of brine, wash and drain.

Cut in not too thin slices. Put a piece of alum size of a walnut in enough water to cover slices. Let stand over night; wash and drain. In a cloth sack, tie the following

2 sticks cinnamon, broken
1/4 teaspoon mace
1 tablespoon whole cloves

Boil together

1 quart vinegar
2 quarts sugar

Add spice sack. When boiling hot, pour over sliced cucumbers. Repeat for three mornings, draining off and bringing to a boil. On the fourth morning put cucumbers in sterilized jars; pour on hot vinegar solution and seal.

I was trying to find my recipe for Crystal pickles which I have made for years. I don’t have a crock any longer but I’m sure I can use a canner that isn’t aluminum. This sounds very close to my old recipe except they use to call them 21 day pickles. Thanks I will try this vintage recipe if I don’t find mine. Toni
