Bread and Butter Pickles

Oh the famous bread and butter pickle.  I have never liked any I have bought in stores, but I couldn’t stop eating these!

This recipe is for 4pts, we doubled it, you can cut it in half, whatever you like. The great think I have learned about pickles is that you need enough liquid and a spice guide is nice, but overall they are hard to mess up.

Another note, many people like to add bell peppers to their bread and butter recipes, but I prefer not to.  Really all it takes is adding 2 thinly sliced red bell peppers to the mix.

Bread and Butter Pickles

What you need:

20 pickling cucumbers (8 Cups ish)

2 Medium Onions Sliced

4 Tbs Salt

2 Cups Apple Cider Vinegar

1 Cup Sugar (you can as much as double this if you want them really sweet)

2 Tbs Whole Mustard seeds

1 Tbs Whole celery seed

1-2 Tsp Red pepper flakes for spicy or ground clove for traditional (we went with the clove)

Dissolve suger in liquids, then add spices and bring to a boil. Add the pickles and onion and cook for 5 minutes.  Ladle into jars. These are great as refrigerator pickles or you can process them. YUM!
