These are the best mustard pickles that you will ever have...if you love mustard pickles, and have some time, these are well-worth the time and effort to prepare, once you make these a few times, you will probably do them with your eyes closed!...a definate must-make! Note: plan ahead, the blanched veggies have to sit for 12 hours.

I like things spicy so I tried using hot mustard powder instead or regular it gave a tiny bit more zing but still not enough for me... so I added a half table spoon of cayenne and now it's got sweet and heat.... great recipe
