Wonderful flavor, crisp pickle, and so fast to make. I added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes for some kick. We can't stop eating them! I used my mandolin but will cut them by hand next time so they are a little thicker. Thank you for sharing!

With this recipe it is very easy to whip up a batch of bread and butter pickles that rivals the ones sold in the store and these are fresh! I did use my mandolin for uniform slices and used an English cucumber. Thanks for posting Katha.
