[quote=biev]My hubby & his mother love bread & butter pickles! We buy the jars and eat all the pickles, and then keep the juice to pickle hard boiled eggs. I think TJ would put just about anything in that bread & butter thing. They've asked me to find them the recipe, can you help? I'm looking forward to homemade pickles

This was posted a while ago, but if you still need a recipe, i have an excellent one.]

Here's my Grandma's recipe, just as she wrote it, so if you have questions, I can't help much, as she always made them, and I never did, and now she is too old to cook anymore. They're so good, I'm thinking I need to carry on her tradition.


Grandma's Pickles

4 quarts sliced cucumbers
6 medium white onions, sliced
2 green bell peppers, chopped
3 cloves garlic
1/3 c. coarse salt
5 c. granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp turmeric
1-1/2 tsp celery seed
2 T mustard seed
3 c. apple cider vinegar

Wash & slice cukes, add onions, peppers and whole garlic cloves.
Add salt; cover w/cracked ice ad mix thoroughly.
Let stand 3 hours in refrigerator.
Combine other ingredients. Pour over drained cukes etc, and heat just to boiling.
Seal in hot sterilized jars.
Sounds very much like my recipe.

I ran across this 'cheap & dirty' recipe for B&B pickles a couple weeks ago and since my hubby dearly loves these little goodies, I tried them. He is on his second batch already!!! I wish I could remember where I saw this and give proper credit.


Bread and Butter Pickles

2 cups light brown sugar
2 cups cider vinegar
1/4 cup kosher salt
1 tablespoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
10 whole cloves
10 allspice berries
1 3/4 pounds Kirby cucumbers -- sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick (about 6 cups) or whatever kind you prefer
2 medium yellow onions -- thinly sliced

DIRECTIONS
In a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard seeds, turmeric, cloves and allspice and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt.

Add the cucumbers and onions and simmer over moderate heat, stirring a few times, until the cucumbers darken, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Let cool, then refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

MAKES ABOUT 6 CUPS

This recipe is excellent. I made them last year, and plan on having a bumper crop this year.

Bread and Butter Pickles

1 gal. medium cucumber
8 large onion or 3 cup small white onion
2 whole red peppers
5 cup vinegar
5 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons Mustard Seed
1 1/2 teaspoons Celery Seed
1 1/2 teaspoons Turmeric
1/2 tsp Ground Clove

Cut the cucumbers and peeled onions into thin slices. Shred or chop the peppers. Place all in a bowl and pour over the 1/2 cup course salt. Refrigerate for three hours and then drain well. Bring the last 6 ingredients to the boiling point. Add the vegetables gradually with very little stirring. Heat the scalding point but do not boil. Turn off the heat and immediately pour into hot sterilized mason jars, seal according to directions for pickle canning.
