Nannie’s Mustard Pickles

Randi is on a roll even though it is not “Get Real Monday”
We are swapping recipes.
This recipe for “Mustard Pickles” is a family heirloom. My husband’s grandmother taught me how to make them. They are on the supper table every night – meat does not taste the same without a  tablespoon of Nannie’s mustard pickles for a little relish!
Nannie’s Mustard Pickles
  • 10 cups cut-up cukes (peel,cut in half, scoop out seeds and inner flesh, then dice in 1/4 in. chunks)
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion

Soak overnight in 8 cups cold water with 1 cup pickling salt sprinkled over

Drain and rinse in the morning.

In large pot mix together

  • 5 and 1/2 cups of sugar (don’t cut the sugar down because you only eat a T of pickles or so at a time)
  • 1 C flour
  • 2 T mustard
  • 1 T turmeric
  • 1 T celery seed
  • Slowly stir in 3 C vinegar.

Bring to a boil over medium heat – stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
Add cuke/onion mixture.
Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly, for about 6-8 min. depending on how crisp you want your pickles.


Enjoy all winter long 🙂
