Ingredients

  • milkweed buds
  • cider vinegar
  • pickling spices of choice

Directions

Use small milkweed pods 1-1 1/2 inchs long. Make pickling brine of your choseing. I do some as dill pickles and some in a sweet bread & butter type brine. Put pods in jars (I use pint and 1/2 pint) cover with hot brine, work out air bubbles and process in water bath canner at a rolling boil for 15 minutes. This is also good using unopened tiger lily buds.
