Old-Fashioned Homemade Sweet Mustard Pickle Recipe

Sweet Mustard Pickle is a pleasant addition to my snack menu. There's a certain satisfaction that comes from making homemade pickles. I love controlling the flavors and the balance between the tangy mustard and the sweet syrup really complements the salty, crunchy cucumbers. Over the years, I've adjusted the quantities of sugar and vinegar to suit my personal taste.

Directions

60 min.
1. Step

Start by washing and drying your pickling cucumbers. It's important to use pickling cucumbers for their firmness and size. Regular cucumbers will become too soft after the pickling process.

2. Step

Slice cucumbers and onions into your preferred thickness. I like them a bit on the thicker side for a satisfying crunch. Sprinkle with salt and let sit for about 2 hours. This helps to pull out excess water and intensify the flavor.

3. Step

Next, prepare the brine. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, vinegar, mustard seeds, and turmeric and bring to a boil. You can adjust the quantities to make the brine to your liking; my personal preference leans towards a stronger mustard flavor, so I tend to add a touch more mustard seeds.

4. Step

Rinse the cucumber and onion slices thoroughly to remove excess salt. This is key to make sure your pickles are not overly salty.

5. Step

Add your cucumber and onion slices to the boiling brine. Make sure they are fully submerged. Allow them to simmer for around 10 minutes.

6. Step

As the cucumbers and onions are simmering, sterilize your jars, ensuring they are free from any bacteria. This is critical for long-term storage.

7. Step

Finally, using a slotted spoon, transfer cucumber and onions into the jars, leaving about 1 inch from the top. Pour the hot brine over, ensuring the cucumbers and onions are completely covered.

8. Step

Seal your jars and let them cool to room temperature before storing them in the refrigerator.
