Shopping Link Pickling Supplies

Turmeric and white mustard seeds give these pickles a sassy kick that will bite you back, just a tad. Not like searing jalapeno or chipotle, but just enough to let you know they are there.


4 cups sliced pickling cucumbers

2 large onions

1 tspn pickling salt

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 cup cider vinegar

1 tspn whole white mustard seeds

Wash and thinly slice the cucumbers, Leaving the skins on.

Peel and slice the onions. Combine the cucumbers, onions, and salt in a glass or ceramic bowl.

Let them stand 3 hours to extract the moisture.

Rinse and thoroughly drain and dry the vegetables well . Combine the remaining ingredients and mix well until the sugar dissolves completely, about 10 minutes.

Pour the cucumber mixture into clean freezer containers, leaving 1 inch of headspace for expansion.

Cap and seal. These will keep up to 1 year in the freezer.
