Fantastic! I used all the ingredients except the carrots and the green beans......only because I didn't have any to hand!! An easy and good recipe that I made last week, I let it mature before tasting it today in a cheese and mustard pickle sandwich! I cut the quantity back to one quarter, as the amount would have been too much for the two of us! Made for Preserving Summer in the Photo's Forum and very much enjoyed thanks Di!! FT:-)
I made these today,,,,very disappointed, the pic is NOT how these turn out. The brine is not the nice thick sauce u see in the pic with this recipe. I only used cukes, cauliflower and pearl onions ,(which is the traditional way). The brine amount was way off also it only filled 5 pint jars not 10. I will let these 2 batches sit for 4 to 6 wks which is the usual amount of time to let pickles sit after canning, they need to finish 'pickling' ...i will repost a comment about the taste then.
