I love making pickles and stumbled across an old pickled pumpkin recipe a few years ago. Using the recipe as a starting point, I made some changes and came up with this. The pickles taste like crunchy cold pumpkin pie – and are a yummy alternative to the ultra-sweet gift basket offerings you usually see.
NOTE: this takes a couple of days from beginning to end so plan your time accordingly. Also, if you’ve never canned anything before, you may want to check out the National Center for Home Food Preservation for a crash course. http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/veg_pick.html
