Used this for a weekend of canning and pickling. It was super easy and the sample we tasted was wonderful. Done one batch with just squash and onions the next batch was 3 different colors of bell peppers and the combo of squash and cucumbers all cut into chunks. Made very pretty jars! Thanks for posting. Will be using this for many years to come!!

This is my third batch of these b&b squash pickles. My children and parents keep eating them up! I chunked the vegetables, rather than sliced them. The only substitution I made was using 4 tsp. of pickling spices (mixed) instead of the separate 2 and 2 of mustard and celery seeds. They turned out slightly crisp, and fabulously delicious right after cooling, and we just can't stop eating them. Now THAT's a compliment about zucchini, yellow squash, and slightly oversized cucumbers cut into little chunks. Highly recommended.
