A friend gave me this recipe and everyone who has tried them wants to take a jar home. Great on hot dogs with cream cheese (just try it).

Directions

  1. Thinly slice cucumbers and combine with onions, peppers, and salt.
  2. Cover and let sit 12 hours or add 2 trays of ice cubes and let set 3 hours.
  3. Drain well.
  4. Combine sugar, vinegar, tumeric, mustard seed, celery seed in large saucepan and bring to a boil.
  5. Add veggies and return to full boil.
  6. Pack in hot sterilized jars, add 1/4 tsp alum if you like to keep crispier.
  7. Process in hot water bath for 10 minutes.
  8. I dont use alum and I buy Ball pickling Lime which I soak the cucumbers in for 12-24 hours before proceeding with the recipe.
  9. They are always crispier that way but bread and butter pickles are good soft too so dont worry about it if you prefer not to use lime or alum.
