RECIPIE: Mustard Pickles

Mustard Pickles

12 to 18 Small Cucumbers
1/2 Quart Water
1/4 Cup Kosher Salt
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Quart Cider Vinegar
1/3 Cup Mustard Powder
2 Tablespoons Pickling Spices
8-12 Garlic Cloves (Optional)

Container large enough to hold all the ingredients with lid.

Wash the cucumbers and then slice them lengthwise either into quarters or halves.  Place the cucumbers into your container.  Heat the water in a larger pot just enough to enable you to dissolve the salt and sugar in it.  Stir well and then add the remaining ingredients.  Once all your ingredients are incorporated pour the contents over your cucumbers ensuring that there is sufficient liquid to cover them.  If more liquid is needed scale the recipe up or down as desired.  Place a loose cover on your container or use an airlock.  A large old 1 gallon crock also works well.  Place the container in a cool dark place and allow to age until the flavor develops.
