Grammie Bea's Fabulous Mustard Pickles

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

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.
