      1/4  cup           pickling salt
    1      gallon        water
      3/4  cup           prepared mustard

    4 1/2  cups          sugar
    2      teaspoons     celery seed, -- optional
 
 Mix vegetables, sprinkle with salt and add water (may have to add more
 than a gallon to cover).  Let stand for 12 hours or overnight.  In the
 morning drain vegetables, rinse them in clear cold water and drain again.
  In a large kettle, mix mustard, turmeric, flour and 1/2 cup vinegar into
 a smooth paste.  Stir in sugar, celery seed and remaining vinegar.  Bring
 to a boil, stirring until sauce thickened.  Add vegetables; return
 mixture to a boil.  Turn down heat; simmer for 10 minutes.  Pack boiling
 hot mixture into hot jars and seal immediately.  
 Note: Jars should be sterilized either by boiling or washing in a
 dishwasher.  Makes about 15 pints, each pint has 386 calories.
