If you can boil water, you can make homemade pickles! Mrs. Wages Quick Pickle mixes contain natural herbs and spices, just add vinegar and water through the canning process. Each pack makes 10-12 quarts of crisp, crunchy pickles—the best you've ever tasted. Ready to eat just 24 hours after preparation. Yes, there really was a Mrs. Wages—a feisty lady who loved to put up food from her garden. She and her husband had a country store near Tupelo, Mississippi, way back in the early 1950s that was a gathering spot for local farmers. It was an old fashioned store where folks came for everything from horse harnesses to ice cream...and best pickling mixes!
