Got the cooking bug, have you? Okay, what's slippery jack?

Your BB is fantastic! Love the colours and the little tie. Love it.

Yes, what the hell is a slippery jack?

Food looks fabulous, too. I need to get my kitchen in order so I can cook more often.

Here is a recipe I found on the web. My mother has our recipe and she's not home. This one is very close to the one we use, although we add red peppers and an onion. Apparently the one we used (which was from Barb, the knitter that got me the little knitting decoration, remember her?)is about 50 or so years old. Love it.

Happy Slippery Jacking!

Slippery Jack Pickles
8 large, very ripe cucumbers
1/2 cup salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 T. mustard seed
1 T. celery seed
1 T. Mixed whole spices
3 1/2 cups cider vinegar

Peel and slice cucumbers lengthwise into 4 or 5 inch lengths. Remove seeds.
Sprinkle with salt and let stand 24 hours. Place salted cucumbers in colander, drain one hour. In large cooking pot boil sugar, spices and vinegar 5 minutes. Add cukes and simmer 20-25 minutes. Pack into hot jars and seal at once.
