Please read my previous posts on pickling before starting this recipe.

Back when I was a child, my Mom used to occasionally buy a jar of mixed pickles. I loved the cauliflower, but there was usually just one small piece in each jar and sometimes I didn’t even get that. Maybe two tiny onions, a small scrap of red pepper, and the rest were chunks of cucumber pickle.

So, I now make my own with nearly all cauliflower and onions — just a few cucumber chunks. A bowl of these is a perfect accompaniment when cold meat sandwiches are the menu.

You can make this right along with a batch of Sweet Pickles (recipe here) or make the mixed pickles up separately. If I do want the cucumbers in the mix, I hold out some, prepped and cooked in the syrup, but not processed, to finish these the next day.
