RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
SWEET MIXED PICKLES, American
Wash cucumbers and cut into medium sized chunks. Peel onions (use the small pickling onions) and break cauliflower into pieces. Cover with hot brine; add alum. Mix well, cover and let stand overnight. Drain. Heat vinegar and sugar, add red pepper cut in strips and the spices tied in cheesecloth. Boil 10 minutes. Add vegetables and bring just to the boil. Pour into sterilized jars and seal.
