Cinnamon Cucumber Rings-in TN we call 'em Christmas Pickle
Peel and slice large cukes about 1/2 inch thick, cut out seeds-you will need 2 gallons should make 8 quarts.
Soak 24 hours in 2 cups lime in 8 1/2 quarts water
Drain and wash-soak in tap water 3 hours and drain again
Mix 1 cup clear vinegar, 1 small bottle red food coloring, 1 teaspoon alum and enough water to cover-Simmer 2 hours
Drain and discard water
12 cinnamon sticks (you can also use powdered cinnamon instead)
3 cups white vinegar
3 cups water
15 cups sugar
Red hots candy (large bag)-I put them in the 3 cups of water ahead of time for faster melting
Add to rings and bring to a boil, fill jars, add 4 whole cloves to each quart

15 CUPS sugar!?! Is that amount correct? The pickles sound good, but they would be REALLY sweet if you used 15 cups of sugar.
Thanks,

Yeap that's right 15 cups of sugar, they are kinda on the pricey side to make but if you like sweet, cripy, cinnamon tasty pickles you will love them. I usually have some of the syrup left over so I save it for the next batch. It takes alot of time but when you put 'em on the table they bring a smile to everybodys face. I have sold them for $6.00 a quart.

Boopsie, what kind of cuke? About how many to make the 2 gallons? I would only do about 1/4 this amount on a first try. Do you process the finished pickles? How long do they keep? Sorry for all the qx,--I've never pickled anything before, but these sound fun. Thanks for the recipe. --pen

I like the idea of using cinnamon candies... sounds sort of like sweet watermelon pickles. Wow at the amount of sugar though... I'm not sure I could get 15 cups of sugar to dissolve in 6 cups of liquid!

I have noticed in all the cinnamon pickle recipes, after mixing in the alum, it says drain and discard water. Should the alum be rinsed off the pickles? I made your recipes and did the final step today. I did add a water bath of 10 minutes. I hope this doesn't make the pickles soft. I did not rinse the pickles after simmering them in the food coloring, vinegar and alum. I only drained as stated. Is it safe to eat pickles with the alum not rinsed off completely?

Also, how long should these be stored before opening them?

All of my friends who have tried my pickles love them! Thanks for the recipe. The only thing I added was some good food grade cinnamon oil. It really adds that special flavor.
