I like this recipe a lot. It is one of the most crispy bread and butter pickles I have ever made my husband likes them also and I will continue making this year by year.

Hi DOTM, I love your diabetic Bread and Butter Pickles. I have been looking for a very good recipe for them for a very long time as my Husband and I are both diabetic we grow most of our veggies and I grow the pickleing cucumbers very small and very crisp. My friend tried your recipe last year with just the regular cukes. I loved them and they are so yummy I really do eat a lot of them as my girl friend gave me about 10 jars of them for Christmas. So I will try my luck with making them this year. Scotts Sassy Girl
