One of the best parts about being married to my husband Mike is that he is my yin to my yang, my mashed potatoes to my gravy and a Fred to my Ginger. In fact, I consider our partnership almost like dancing to the tango cheek to cheek. Sometimes I lead and he follows, and sometimes he leads, and I follow with a strong grip. (Cue the sly smile.)

Here is the hundred-year-old recipe:

And, here is the recipe updated for modern cooks:
I am not as frugal as homemakers a hundred years ago. I did not set the syrup aside for more pickling after I made this recipe.
