Today we are preparing a Pickle Pot for several people and a new one for me, so lets get started. The hardest part of the Pickle Pot is waiting for them to be ready.
We Start With A Bed Of Onion Sprinkled With Salt
A Layer of Cucumber Sprinkled With Salt
Add The Pickle Spice
Repeat The Layers
Cover With Vinegar and Water
Cover Container and Refrigerate
Wait Two Weeks If You Can Then Enjoy!
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.
