|Hi, here is the second page of Pickles and Picklers. Enjoy my recipe collection.
Recipes are my aunts, uncles, cousins and other recipes collected from the 1950's
through the 1970's. I find handwritten recipes in old tin recipe boxes, wedding gift
memories (back when gifts like this were handmade). Anyway, all the recipes are
original, none from magazines or the like.
Please email with any questions to email@example.com
You will have to copy and paste. I need to control the spam.

IF YOU WANT TO TRY THE FOLLOWING RECIPES, FEEL FREE, BUT REMEMBER TO
"CAN" THE FOOD PROPERLY SO YOU "DON'T KILL YOURSELF", AS MY MOTHER
KNOW THE PROCESS OF "CANNING FOODS"
Oven canning is dangerous, don't do it ever.
Cold "sealing" or filling jars with cold pickles or preserves that are not processed
is dangerous. Always - heat is necessary to seal jars and a water-bath canner is
needed to prevent them from spoiling.

|Hot Dog Pickles - circa 1950 something
From the recipe box of Mrs. Raymond Strawder.
She wrote, " Hot Dog Pickles is good served on meat or beans."
1 peck of green tomatoes
20 red sweet peppers
2 hot peppers
Grind all together and pour a handful of salt over the mixture.
Add 1 quart of boiling water to the vegetables in white cloth bag.
Empty into kettle and add:
1 quart of prepared mustard
1 quart of vinegar
3 pints of sugar
Let cook 30 minutes and add 3 or 5 tablespoons of cornstarch. Let boil up
good and seal.
|Old Fashioned Pickled Beans
1 bushel of beans for 6 gallons of pickled beans
Cook beans until the small bean is tender enough to mash easy
between your fingers. Drain and cool on a clean table. Then
place beans inside a clean white sack in a big jar. Put a plate over
the beans and weight down with clean rocks, wrapped in a clean
cloth. Make a brine of salt water with coarse salt to taste salty.
Then pour over beans and let stand for a week or 10 days, until
beans are sour, then heat beans just enough to warm them
through. Pack in quart jars that have been sterilized, seal. Do not
use sandstone rock.
Recipe came from the recipe box of Mrs. Dessie Talkington.
During the 1950's, she wrote, "Beans are delicious and to avoid
waste put them in a white sack. This was my grandmother's
recipe. Corn may be prepared the same way by cooking it 15
minutes and pouring cold water over it before pickling. Be sure
the brine has enough salt to taste good and salty.
