GREAT ON COLD MEATS : This is a mixture of Vegetable preparation from one recipe and the Mustard Sauce from another .. A family favorite All Year Around .. Make in quantity when cauliflowers are cheap... because your friends will be wanting a jar or two from each batch .. Shirley used to make these Pickles at least 3 or 4 times a year and her grandchildren were often caught eating it out of the bottle .. Shirley would chastise them with "Get out of there ..Don't eat it all .. I won't have any left" .. but they knew that she had 5 or 6 jars in the cupboard above the fridge ! *IF YOU CAN'T GET GREEN TOMATOES.. REPLACE WITH 1 MORE CUCUMBER AND ONE MORE CAULIFLOWER*
