My mother's recipe adds horseradish root (about one tablespoon of grated root per jar) and an oak leaf. The horseradish gives it a bit more of a bite. The oak leaf is simply tradition near as I can tell. Reply

I made these pickles a few summers ago in a larger amount. I remember addind tumeric root to the mix. Could this be added to this recipe? If so how much would I use? Reply
