School Girl Pickle

This is a very old recipe given to me by one of the finest cooks in our church. It is a very sweet pickle, and takes a long time... about 3 weeks. It is also highly prized and a favorite of all my sweet pickle loving relatives and friends. I make sure I have at least 3 jars, when I get low, I know it is time to make more. This and the curry pickle are a staple in my pantry. The amounts for Nutrition Facts will be hard to figure. I grow cucumbers, and I use a 2 gallon crock in this particular adventure, so let's assume it is 6 pounds of cucumber. The amounts are approximate... how much is one serving of a jar of pickles, anyway! This recipe taught me to understand pickles. It would be considered a long brine pickle. Good luck, if you make it! It is well worth it. As I am writing the instructions, I wonder if anyone will try to make these wonderful pickles. (They do go for about $10 a jar at our church's annual "Lord's Acre Day" auction)
