Then the next night you drain off the water and mix up the syrup which is vinegar and sugar and green food colouring. You pour that over the pickles. You put the pickling spice in cheese cloth and let it sit in the liquid. You do this each night reserving the liquid and then on the 11th day, you boil the syrup one last time and put them in jars and pour the liquid over top! Voila pickles!!!!
I brought a couple of small jars into a couple of my friends at work and they said they were good – so that’s good to hear! We were joking around saying next year I should make a bucket of red, a bucket of green, a bucket of purple and a bucket of yellow pickles and then put them in a jar together to make rainbow pickles!!!! We’ll see!
Chow for now,
