Spicy Mock Apple Rings Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
I make lots of pickles and this is a favorite among those who love cinnamon flavoring. I use very large cucumbers which I first peel and scrape seeds out of then cut up into sticks. They fit in the jar easier. I sometimes add a drop or two of cinnamon oil to the syrup for more cinnamon flavor. This recipe is often made with sliced cucumbers where seeds are cut from center to form a ring. These are known also as Wedding Ring Pickles. Most people are surprised they are made from cucumbers, they seem more like apples.

This is quite a process. Took me 4 days to get it done. And I did need to make more syrup to fill the jars at the end. I made a batch with the heart-shaped slices of patty pan squashes, they were so pretty. The taste is wonderful at the time of canning. I can't wait until they've been in the pantry for a while to see how they are then.

OH MY GOODNESS!! These are wonderful! It is quite the process, I'm going to have to make a double batch next year. I'm one of those mom that is totally against food coloring. My children reacted badly when they where little. I used beets when I cook the zucchini during the step of two hour cooking and only used less than half the food coloring called for. These are awesome!!

Love them! I too omitted food coloring and they still a nice red from the red hots (I know-they have dye in them too). I did about 4x the recipe using cucumbers (10) and got 14 pints. A wonderful pickle to accompany any holiday dinner or family gathering.
