Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Prepare the vegetables; drain off excess liquids.
Combine the vegetables in a large stainless steel or enamel-lined kettle.
Stir in 1 3/4 cups of the vinegar. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Continue boiling, stirring frequently, for 30 minutes.
Drain and discard liquids.
Add the remaining 1 3/4 cups vinegar, the sugar, salt, celery seeds, and mustard seeds.
Add the cheesecloth bag with mixed pickling spices. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Fill hot, prepared jars, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Clean jar rims and fit with lids and rings.
Process in a covered boiling-water bath canner for 10 minutes.
Turn off heat, remove the cover, and let jars stand in the hot water for 5 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool completely.
