Ingredients:  
1/2 tsp. Dry Mustard
1/2 tsp. Turmeric

Directions:
Directions:
As these are refrigerator pickles you may use either a plastic or glass container. If a plastic container is used, an empty clean 5# peanut butter pail works great. If glass is used, use any jar that will hold at least 2 qts and has a lid. Wash and dry container. Prepare vegetables as directed. Put in container. In a saucepan combine vinegar, sugar and spices. Heat to boiling to dissolve sugar and set spices. Cool then pour over vegetables. Store in refrigerator. Let set at least 2 weeks before eating. Stir through them at least once to mix spices. These will last 4 months or longer as long as you keep them refrigerated. Take out a serving at a time and this keeps the original container fresh.

Personal Notes:
Mom (Ida McMillan) made us all a batch of these every year. Sometimes we would make it home with them. They are sooooo good.
