Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Not sure that these two pickles go together. They were on the same piece of note paper and the corn sauce had parentheses around it. Directions were sketchy and assumed you would know how much of each thing. I don't know what was in the mixed spices but I doubt if it is mixed pickling spice.
