RECIPE:  Grecian Cucumber Pickles

1 pound whole pickling cucumbers

For the pickling solution:

3 cups water

1 cup white vinegar

3 tablespoons pickling salt

Place in a 1-quart jar:

1 tablespoon pickling salt


Bring water, vinegar and 3 tablespoons of salt to a boil; keep at simmer while you prepare the jars.

Pack cucumbers upright in hot sterilized 1-quart jars.  Into each jar, place 1 tablespoon salt and 2 teaspoons MEDITERRANEAN PICKLING SPICE.  Pour boiling pickling solution over cucumbers until jar is filled to 1/4 inch of top; fill no further.

Seal immediately and allow to cool before storing in the pantry.  The pickles will take 4 weeks to cure in the pickling solution.  Afterwards, they will be good for 2 years as long as the seal does not break.

Yield:  2 quarts


RECIPE:  Green Tomato Pickles

8 pounds green tomatoes, quartered

3 onions, halved then sliced

1/2 cup pickling salt

2 cups sugar

2 cups white vinegar


1 tablespoon dried ginger chips

In a large mixing bowl, toss tomatoes and onions with salt.  Allow to stand for 1 hour.  After 1 hour, rinse well, drain and set aside.

In a sauce pan combine sugar, vinegar, MEDITERRANEAN PICKLING SPICE and ginger; bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer 10 minutes.  Strain and pour liquid into a large kettle.  Add tomatoes, onions and ginger chips.  Bring just to a boil and remove from heat.

Ladle hot relish into hot sterilized jars; cover with syrup and seal.  Allow jars to cool on counter before storing away.  The relish is good to eat now, but will be better after a 3-week cure.

*Serve with sandwiches, fried fish, brisket, burgers and hot dogs.

*Chop and fold into potato or macaroni salad.  Add to chicken and tuna salad.

*Perfect on a cheese or cold meat platter with whole grain mustard and fresh vegetables.

*Instead of salsa, top scrambled eggs with chopped Green Tomato Pickles.

*For a light and healthy snack, serve with cream cheese and crackers.
