1PREPARE and PROCESS home canning jars and lids according to manufacturer’s instructions for sterilized jars. Keep jars hot.

2WASH cucumbers and drain. Cut 1/16-inch slice off blossom end and discard. Leave cucumbers whole, cut into spears or slice.

3COMBINE Mrs. Wages® White Distilled Vinegar, water and Mrs. Wages® Spicy Pickles Mix into a large non-reactive saucepan. Do not use aluminum. Bring mixture just to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture dissolves. Remove from heat.

4Pack cucumbers into sterilized hot jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Evenly divide hot pickling liquid among the packed jars, leaving ½-inch headspace. Unused brine may be stored in a non-reactive container up to 1 week in refrigerator. Remove air bubbles, wipe rim and cap each jar as it is filled. If more liquid is needed for proper headspace, add a mix of 1 part hot vinegar and 2 parts hot water.

If jars do not completely seal, refrigerate and consume within 1 week. Product is ready to eat after 24 hours. Before serving, chill to enhance flavor and crispness. Store properly processed shelf-stable product in a cool place, and use within 1 year.
