Grandma Naef's Pickle Recipe

AKA: Sweet Pickle Chunks

10 Med Cucumbers
8 C. Sugar
2 Tbl. Mixed Pickle Spice
4 tsp. Salt
4 C. Cider Vinegar

Cover whole cucumbers with boiling water and let stand overnight. Drain. Repeat for 3 more days. On the fifth day, drain and cut into bite size chunks. Combine remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Pour over cucumber chunks. Cover and let stand for 2 days. Bring the mixture to a full boil. Fill hot scalded jars to 1/2 inch of top. Cover with hot lids and rings (rings don't need to be hot). Do not close too tightly. Process in boiling hot water bath for 5 minutes. Jars must be covered with water and standing upright. Start timing as soon as jars are placed in hot water. When jars are removed, they will pop and seal as they cool. Makes 9 pts.

  1. I know this isn't simple, or an "everyday" recipe, but it's a thompson classic.
