Squash Pickles

Squash Pickles

30 or more Yellow Crookneck Squash or similar summer squash
2 or 3 Large Onions
1 Large Red Bell Pepper
2 Sweet Green peppers
6 Cups Vinegar
5 Cups Sugar
1/4 Cup Salt
1 teaspoon Mustard Seed
1 teaspoon Celery Seed
1 Tablespoon Whole Cloves

Tie spices up in a bag (6 inch by 6 inch cheese cloth or muslin, tie corners together) and add to boiling vinegar. Add all the other ingredients and let boil 10 minutes. Ladle into hot sterilized wide mouth jars, remove air bubbles and seal. Water bath for 10 minutes.

Be sure to use an enamel pot when boiling vinegar. Vinegar stains aluminum pots and isn’t kind to stainless steel either đŸ˜¦
