Question about Linda Lou's Sweet pickle chunks

oletimerJuly 31, 2012

My question is do you not add any water to the syrup mixture

most of the recipes I have read for the 9 day sweet pickles included water with the vinegar and sugar.

Example:

1 pint vinegar

1 quart water

4 cups sugar

1 oz. celery seed, all spice, cinnamon

Would the above syrup be safe to use?

Thank you

Sorry I forgot to ask it you can add a couple drops of green food coloring to the syrup before you can them, Thank you

No, you don't add water. Mine are sweet, good spices, crunchy. Just plain good.
Yes, you can add food coloring.

The other recipe has more water than vinegar. You always have to have at least 1/2 of the brine to be 5 % acidity to water ratio.
So, no, that is not a safe recipe.
