I'm looking for some good recipes that will hold up to canning for the following:
Dill Pickles
Spaghetti Sauce

  1. The National Center for Home Food Preservation has you covered:

    1. Mrs. Wages brand pickling mixes makes great pickles. I usually try to do things from scratch, but this is quick and easy. You can also pickle zucchini.

      1. This isn't what you asked for but it is wonderful: MUSTARD PICKLES. 5 quarts raw vegetables including sliced big cucumbers, little baby cucumbers, little bitty onions (I use frozen), raw cauliflower, green tomatoes, chopped big onions, and red or green pepper in chunks---use any proportions you like or omit things you don't like (I recommend the cauliflower and miniature onions). Soak for 24 hours in brine made of 1 quart water and 1/2 cup salt. Bring to boil in same solution. Drain. Add the hot mustard dressing, heat, can, and seal. DRESSING: 3/8 cup dry mustard (like Coleman's), 3/8 cup dry turmeric, 1 cup flour, 2 cups sugar (mix all together so flour won't lump) then stir in 2 quarts vinegar and cook until thick. Makes 10 pints.

        This was my mother's recipe 70 years ago. These mustard pickles are good with anything but are unbelievable with ham.

          How long do you process the sealed jars?
