What is a lug in pickles and recipe question
I'm new to canning and received a recipe from a friend for sweet pickles. It calls for 1 lug of cucumbers but I can't find anything that tells me how much is in a lug. Cucumbers seem to be measured by the bushel. Also, the recipe calls for 24 cups of sugar, 12 cups vinegar, 15 teas salt and pickling spice. Does this sound right? I guess it would depend on what a lug is as it sure sounds like a lot of sugar to me. Unfortunately this is a handed down recipe and the person is now deceased so no one to ask. Thanks for any assistance.
