These Bread and Butter Pickles are very simple to make and require little time. I do not can the pickles because I only make about 3 pints at a time.

As much as I enjoy this kind of pickles I just had to try your recipe, & am so glad I did! Wonderful tasting, & it's always nice to be able to make something like this instead of going to the store to buy it! Already have a friend standing in the wings, hoping I'll gift her a jar of these pickles, & I just might, too! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
