Sweet Pickle Spears

It is so rewarding to walk out to your garden and pick the fruit of your labor and jar it up to store away for your family!

Today I had enough pickles picked to jar up 6 pints. Which was about 4 pounds. So I thought I would share the recipe with you.

The first thing you have to do is cut your cukes into spears. you want cukes to be about 4 inches long.
The next thing you want to do is cover your cukes with boiling water and let them sit for about 45 minutes. Drain and then pack your jars.

Next you will need:

4 Cups sugar
3 3/4 cups Vinegar
3 Tb. canning salt
4 Tsp. celery seed
4 Tsp. Turmeric
1 1/2 Tsp. Mustard seed

Bring to a boil and ladle hot liquid over cucumbers, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Remove air bubbles and adjust two piece caps. Process 20 minutes in a boiling water canner.
