Lady Ashburnham Pickles
 
 
A classic Maritime relish!
Recipe type: Miscellaneous
Ingredients
  • 6 large cucumbers (peeled with seeds removed and chopped into a ¼ to ½ inch dice)
  • ¼ cup salt *{table or coarse; see note}
  • 4 cups onions, chopped fine
  • 2½ cups vinegar
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 Tbsps. flour
  • 1 Tbsp. dry mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. tumeric
  • 1 tsp. mustard seed
  • 1 tsp. celery seed
Instructions
  1. Cut your cucumbers and onions into small pieces and mix together in a large pot; I use a food processor for the onions but cut the cucumber by hand. {I find the cucumbers are much too delicate to chop in a processor and they may very quickly turn to mush}.
  2. Add salt to cucumbers and onions, and let sit overnight.
  3. Next day, drain and rinse salt. Add the remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat for 45 mins, making sure to stir the pickles often. Carefully pack into hot sterilized jars. Wait for the “pop”, store and enjoy!
  4. Refrigerate any open jars.
