Here's a recipe for House Pickles from Chopped Champion & Chef Suzanne Vizethann of
that can be made with a Made In
4 cups white vinegar
2 cups cider vinegar
4 cups granulated sugar
2 Tbsp dry mustard
½ cup kosher salt
½ Tbsp turmeric
2 Tbsp red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp whole fennel seeds
¼ cup whole black peppercorns
1 quart pickling brine
2 lbs (about 8-10) medium Kirby cucumbers
Put all pickle brine ingredients in a Made In
8 QT Stock Pot
. Place pot on the stove over high heat. As soon as the mixture starts to boil, remove from heat and stir with a whisk until sugar and salt are completely dissolved.
Using a china cap or a fine mesh strainer set over a 4 QT container, strain pickling liquid and discard seasonings. If not using right away, put in airtight container and let chill in the refrigerator overnight.
Cut the cucumbers into ⅛ inch thick slices and place in a large nonreactive bowl.
Pour 1 quart of pickling brine in a Made In
4-6 QT Saucepan
over high heat and bring to a boil.
Once brine starts to boil, pour it over the bowl with the cucumbers. Place a couple of small plates over cucumbers to weigh them down, ensuring they stay submerged in the liquid.
Place the cucumber mixture in a quart-sized resealable container or food pan, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
