Mom's Cinnamon Pickles

My mom and grandma made these every year from as far back as I can remember. Now I make them for my family. They are a great sweet addition to any meal!!

Difficulty: Intermediate

Servings: about 10 pints


Set #1 –
2 gallons peeled & seeded cucumbers
2 cups pickling lime
8 1/2 quarts water

Set #2 –
1 cup 5% vinegar
1 tsp allum
water to cover

Set #3 –
3 cups 5% vinegar
10 cups sugar
16 oz. red hots candy
3 cups water
10 cinnamon sticks


Combine Set #1 ingredients & soak for 24 hours. Drain & rinse. Then soak cucumbers in enough water to cover for 3 hours & drain.

Combine Set #2 ingredients & cucumbers in a large pot. Simmer for 2 hours & drain.

Combine Set #3 ingredients in a pot. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and pour over cucumbers. Let soak in refrigerator for 24 hours. Drain syrup, reheat to boiling, & pour back over cucumbers 3 more times, letting it soak in the refrigerator 24 hours each time. After the last 24 hour soak, prepare jars, lids, rings, & canner for canning. Drain syrup and bring to a boil 1 more time. While waiting for syrup to boil, pack cucumber slices in to jars. Pour boiling syrup into jars leaving 1/2 inch head-space. Place 1 cinnamon stick in each jar, if desired for extra cinnamon flavor. Process in a BWB for 5 minutes to seal.
