2 3/4 cp sugar
1 tbsp celery seed
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp mustard seed

Bring the above to boiling, and then add to jars filled with vegetable mix, leaving 1/2” head room. Process and seal immediately.

NOTE: Mom usually tripled the veggies for a batch, but only doubled the juice.
