   ~-------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Finely chop or grind, through the medium blade of a food chopper, the
   cucumbers, onions, and red pepper, and put each ground vegetable into a
   separate bowl.  Rinse the food chopper between each vegetable.  Also put
   into separate bowls, the gherkins, white onions, and the cauliflower
   flowerets.  Sprinkle each vegetable with the salt, using about 1/4 c to
   each bowl.  Cover the gherkins, pickling onions, and cauliflower with cold
   water and let all the vegetables stand overnight.  In the morning, drain
   the chopped vegetables in a colander; drain the whole vegetables and dry
   them with a towel.  Mix the vegetables in a preserving kettle, stir in the
   sugar and 6 cups of the vinegar, and bring the mixture to a boil.  Combine
   the flour, mustard, tumeric and celery salt and mix them to a smooth paste
   with the remaining vinegar.  Stir the paste gradually into the vegetables
   and continue to stir until the sauce is slightly thickened.  Turn the
   pickles into jars and seal at once.
   Makes 6 quarts.
