Personal Notes:
This recipe is from our Aunt Sis. I make it every fall. The first time I tried making it at our family home on Burriss Street, which was right across the street from our Aunt Sis, I needed turmeric. I called Aunt Sis and she brought over the tumeric and left 3 hours later after all the pickles were in the jars and everything was cleaned up. Best Aunt (second mom) ever.
