1/2 cup salt
2 tbsp mixed pickling spices

Chop or grind carrots, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions. Sprinkle with salt and let stand overnight in the refrigerator.
Tie spices loosely in a clean, thin, white cloth and add to vegetables. Simmer 30 to 45 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent
sticking. Remove spice bag. Add sugar, cayenne pepper, and vinegar; simmer 5 to 10 minutes.

10 minutes. Remove jars; cool and store. Yield: 8 to 10 pints.
