One of my readers sent this in to me several years ago. Her Dad made big batches of these in the laundry tub, so I named them “Washtub Pickles”. These are easy enough for a child to make – check out granddaughter Eva mixing them up and neighbor Oliver making the brine.
Now if you want to see the video I did on Fox 19 this morning for the pickles, you’ll find it here:
3 quarts thinly sliced cucumbers
2 cups thinly sliced or chopped bell peppers – can be green, red, yellow, whatever
2 cups thinly sliced onions
2 cups chopped or thinly sliced carrots – can use already grated carrots
2 tablespoons celery seed
3 cups sugar
1/3 cup salt
2 cups white vinegar
Pour brine over veggies. Let sit several hours on counter, stirring every once in a while. Store in frig.
