Pickled Fruit

When we think of Grammy and pickled fruit, usually it's all about the watermelon rind. According to this recipe, though, you can pickle just about everything.

Pickled Fruit

5 cups sugar
2 cups water
1 cup vinegar
12" stick cinnamon, broken
2 ts whole cloves
5 lbs fruit, washed, seeded and peeled
(peaches, pears, pineapple, melon, papaya, citrus, kumquats)

-In a large Dutch oven combine sugar, water, vinegar, cinnamon and cloves.
-Heat until boiling, reduce heat.
-Add fruit to syrup and...
(oops! okay, that's all we have of that recipe. Still, Grammy knew how to pickle, so I bet if we follow the instructions for pickled watermelon rind, we'll have good results)

  1. My parents went to visit Aunt Gertie (my great-aunt) and she told them all about this project! I have fond memories of Thanksgivings in Pittsfield and can't wait until you post some of those recipes :)
