Beal’s Pickles N Pints

Beal's PIckles N PintsDo  you like pickles?  Do you like beer?  Beal’s Pickles N Pints in Willoughby is where the two collide, in the best possible way!  You can read my review of Beal’s in my post for the Lake County Visitors Bureau at Beal’s Pickles N Pints.

The Beal family makes their own pickles.  I have never canned pickles before but at the Mentor Farm Market this summer a lady at the West Orchards stand told me she had heard of an easy method for making sweet pickles in the microwave.  She had some beautiful small pickling cucumbers so I purchased six, went home and fired up Google.  I found this recipe for Microwave Bread and Butter Pickles at AllRecipes.com.    I made up a batch and they were delicious!  Who knew making pickles could be so easy.

INGREDIENTS:
1 large cucumber, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a medium microwave safe bowl, mix cucumber, salt, onion, mustard seeds, white
sugar, distilled white vinegar, celery seed and turmeric.
2. Microwave on high 7 to 8 minutes, stirring twice, until cucumbers are tender and onion
is translucent.
3. Transfer to sterile containers. Seal and chill in the refrigerator until serving.
