Girl Scout Party (A blog celebrating Girls and their achievements in Girl Scouts)
I'm blogging while cooking dinner so I don't have much time. I wanted to share a super easy recipe for pickles I tried this week. They are Lime Crisp Pickles. I've never used pickling lime, but it's like magic. The cucumbers soaked in it, and when I drained off the lime they were so crisp. Does anyone know how that works?
7 lbs cucumbers
1 C pickling lime
2 qt vinegar
1 T salt
1 gallon water
1 T celery seed
9 C sugar
1 T mixed pickling spice
slice cucumbers and soak in solution of lime and water for 24 hours
Cover with cold water and soak for 3 hours.
Add vinegar, sugar, salt, celery seed, and spice. Soak over night.
Next day pour into pan and boil for 15 minutes.
Pack in jars and seal.
Fancy that, I'm in a real pickle for time with a new blog and pickles too. DeeLight
