Party Pickles

My Mother-in-law gave me this recipe a few years back and it's still a great recipe for canning pickles. We use this as a side dish (instead of a salad) to a broiled chicken recipe that I'll post one of these days. This recipe has a lot of resting time in it, so while it make take you all day to make, it's not hands on the entire time.

Party Pickles
6 litres sliced fresh pickling cucumbers
6 medium onions, sliced
1 medium cauliflower, chopped into bite size pieces
Sliced carrots ( I would do about 2 or 3 but you can adjust to your family's liking)
1-2 red bell peppers, sliced
3 garlic cloves
3 trays ice cubes

Mix and let stand for 3 hours, drain in a colander for 2 1/2 =3 hours

Pickling Juice
5 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp turmic
2 tbsp mustard seed
1 1/2 tsp celery seed
3 cups vinegar

Boil together for a few minutes then add to pickles. Bring this to a boil. Ladel into sterilized jars and seal in a water bath.
