Scrapbook Grandma's Special Family Recipes

Grandmothers are known for their delicious homemade food. For Tracey Taylor, it's all about her grammie's mustard pickles. She recalls helping her grandmother cut up the fresh vegetables and how the house would smell after a day of picking. Today, Tracey makes these mustard pickles for her family using grammie's recipe. It really is a tradition worth preserving!
