Bread and Butter Pickles
Cut into thin rings:
30 medium cucumbers
8 medium onions
Cut in fine strips:
2 large pepper, red or green
Place veggies in large bowl or pot. Dissolve 1/2 cup salt in ice cold water and pour over veggies until covered. Let stand for 3 hours. (I have left it over night and they are just fine)
Combine in large pot:
3 c. sugar
4 c. vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
1 c. water
2 T. mustard seed
1 t. turmeric
1 t. whole cloves
Bring to boil, add drained veggies and heat until boiling point. Do not boil. Pack into jars and seal. I steam can for about 10-15 minutes.
These pickles are a favourite here! Enjoy!
I just am in the middle of making a batch here today. I have the veggies sitting right now and tomorrow I’ll finish processing them.
Here is a picture of the veggies standing in the water waiting until I get to them tomorrow morning. I used a yellow pepper too. I thought it was neat that I had made this, this afternoon and then when I checked out Tammy’s site, I saw her recipe swap for today had to do with cucumbers! Perfect timing!
This is a picture I took last summer, you can see the bread and butter pickles to the far left.
I will try and update this post tomorrow with freshly canned jars of Bread and Butter pickles.
