Pickles ... part deux

I was mistaken. It's 4 days. Argh. Yesterday and today I had to boil the sugar and vinegar syrup with the rinds. This is what they look like after day 2 and as I put them on the stove for day 3.

7 cups sugar
2 cups white vinegar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon oil
1/4 tsp. clove oil

You can find oils (NOT extracts, which are alcohol based) in drug stores and baking/candy making stores.

Tomorrow, I can.


  1. I have never heard of these. I assume they are good since you are spending 4 days making them.

  2. "Tomorrow, I can."

    What a profound statement! :)

    Hope the effort is worthwhile. Someday I'm gonna can something. I did make my own freezer jam earlier this year. It's a good and easy thing for first timers. You can use frozen fruit from the grocery to make it even easier on yourself.
