Jerusalem Artichoke Pickles

Yield 4 1/3 pints


  • 4 pounds Jerusalem artichokes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large white onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard seeds
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons whole peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons whole allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 2 (3-inch) sticks cinnamon, broken
  • 1 quart white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar

How to Make It

  1. Combine artichokes and onion in a large glass container; sprinkle with salt. Cover and refrigerate 24 hours. Rinse mixture several times in cold water; drain well.

  2. Combine spices; tie loosely in a cheesecloth bag. Combine spice bag, vinegar, and sugar in a stainless steel stockpot. Bring to a boil; boil 3 minutes, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add artichoke mixture. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove spice bag and onion; discard. Pack artichokes into hot sterilized jars, and cover with hot syrup, leaving 1/3- inch head space. Remove air bubbles. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw bands tight. Process artichokes in boiling- water bath 10 minutes.
