In the beginning of the cucumber harvest we start the Pickle Pot.
I remember when I was a little girl going to my Mother's refrigerator and taking a bowl of pickles from
The Pickle Pot.
I don't ever remember a summer when I didn't have a Pickle Pot in my refrigerator.We always have a bowl of pickles from the Pickle Pot for our lunch or dinner. There are pickles for relish, burger's, salads, and the vinegar is heavenly used as a salad dressing.
A large glass container is best, but plastic is ok.
Fill the container half full with sliced cucumbers
The slices can be different sizes that is what makes the Pickle Pot fun.
Fill 1/4 of the container with white onion slices.
Salt the cucumbers and onions very well and mix together.
Add 2 to 4 tablespoons of pickle spice to taste.
Pour White Vinegar over the cucumber and onion mixture just until barely covered.
Fill the remainder of the container with water.
Let your Pickle Pot set for 1 week in the refrigerator before using.
You can add to the Pickle Pot all summer, just keep chopping cucumbers and adding salt. From time to time you may have to add more vinegar and water.
The Pickle Pot
Miz Helen's Kitchen
1 Quart Glass Container
1 yellow onion sliced
3 cloves garlic
3 cups cucumber slices
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons pickling spice
White Vinegar to cover onions and pickles
Water to add to Vinegar
In a clean GLASS container begin to layer with sliced onions, then sliced cucumbers. Sprinkle the top with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 pod of garlic. Repeat the layer and add 1 tablespoon of the pickling spice. Repeat the layer again ending with the last tablespoon of pickling spice and the remainder of the salt. Fill the container 3/4 of the way full with vinegar and 1/4 with water until the cucumbers and onions are completely covered. Seal the jar tightly and shake up and down to distribute the seasons. Place in the refrigerator for 2 weeks before serving, (if you can wait that long). As the Pickle Pot empties just add more cucumbers and onions and your Pickle Pot is always full all summer long.
Let me know how you enjoy your Pickle Pot. Make a memory!
Peace and Joy
