This is a great tasting mustard pickle recipe for those cucumbers that get away on you! Large is good, seedy and bitter no! Recipe from a friend's family collection. A family favorite and one that is especially good with homemade sausage, or any sausage for that matter! Great with smokies. NOTE For those new to canning or as a general refresher please read one of the many excellent canning cookbooks or go on line to become familiar with the canning procedures. While I have never processed these - I see new guidelines as to processing - do check for the recommends in your area. Do remember there are no short cuts when it comes to cleanliness - I have always assured the utensils as well as the jars are sterilized - clean the sinks and work area and have good supply of clean dish cloths on hand. Never use non - reactive containers ( use stainless steel unchipped enamel/ porcelain - be sure all your bowls and containers are food grade)
