Grammie Bea's Fabulous Mustard Pickles

Total Time

My gram passed away in 1984, but her fabulous recipes live on :) These pickles are my absolute FAVORITES of all time. They are DELICIOUS with soups and chowders, with your favorite sandwich, or just for a snack! I make mine in peanut butter jars by the jar. I just let them sit for a couple of weeks, then put in the fridge, and they last 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator with no problem. But don't worry, they won't last that long :D The cooking time does not include the processing time if you decide to can them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut cucumbers in 1/2, and then into 1/4's. Cut into chunks about 2" long. Put in jar.
  2. Add water to the vinegar. (If you want pickles in a hurry, add hot vinegar to hot water).
  3. Pour over pickles in jar.
  4. Add dry mustard, sugar, and salt. Put on cover.
  5. You can process these if you want to, but we always eat these so fast that we don't.
  6. Let sit for a couple of weeks and eat.

I canned some of these pickles earlier this summer and just opened my first jar. They are so tasty with a little bite to them that makes you pucker up and say hey these are awesome! We had them with some fresh clam chowder that I made from a friend of mine who gave me some fresh clams. The pickles were a great addition to our lunch!

I had some pickling cukes so decided it was time to make some pickles. I had a few empty peanut butter jars to use. I made these up and stored them for a couple of weeks, then gave one jar to my neighbor to try and one to keep for myself. I opened them yesterday and pulled out a couple to have with my lunch, and they were so addicting I had to go in and grab some more! These are so simple to make and they are crispy and delicious tasting pickles, and different than I have ever had! They tasted excellent!!! I love that you don't have to process these, as long as you use them up in a month or so. The vinegar preserves them for quite a while.
