I've been cooking most of my life - I've cooked for camps, churches, missions trips, Bible camps - Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan and Cyprus Bible Camp... oh ya, Glad Tidings Camp in Saskatchewan and Crystal Lake Bible Camp... I can tell you... I'd cook for them all any day, but deliver me from cooking for seniors!
I wish you could all taste my ice cream pail pickles. The recipe is no secret and it's very very easy. When we were on the farm, I'd do up a batch and everyone would just help themselves - they wouldn't last too long, either! The recipe says to let stand for five days, but that rarely happened. In fact, I've been eating these already and I only made them this morning! Too delicious to resist!
You want the recipe? No problem. It's not a family secret or anything. Anyone can have it and its so very easy. I've been making these all my adult life... and I'm over 90! So, this recipe is tried and true! Here it is:
Ice Cream Pail Pickles (4 L pail) Slice cukes (I use regular long english cukes) and onions to fill ice cream pail FULL.
Syrup: 1/4 c salt 4 c. sugar (I use 3 of honey) 4 c vinegar 1/2 tsp. tumeric 1 1/2 tsp celery seed 1 1/2 tsp mustard seed
Heat syrup to boiling and pour over veggies. Let stand for 5 days and use. ... See MoreSee Less
