Prepare the vegetables

I am using Persian cucumbers for this recipe. I sliced them into 1/2 inch rounds

This is a step you don't have to take but I do, I lightly salt the slices and place on a towel. Cover with another towel and let them sweat for an hour.

Bring to a simmer, not a boil, the pint jars and lids. Keep warm till ready to use.

Combine the cucumber slices, peppers and onions in a boil.


The Pickling Sauce

Get together the pickling auce ingredients.

Whisk all the ingredients together in a 2 quart saucepan and bring to a simmer.
cook till thickened and smooth. Lift out the jars

Pack the jars with the vegetables.
Pour the sauce over the vegetables, up to 1/2 inch from the top.

Put the lids on bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove the jars and let them cool


Let the jars cool and check to make sure that the lid sucks in. When you push on
the lid there should be no give to it at all. If not , either redo, or store in the refrigerator.
