Bread-And-Butter Pickles My Way

Recipe by Lennie
READY IN: 5hrs 25mins




  • I recommend using a Cuisinart fitted with a slicing blade to make the preparation of the vegetables less tedious.
  • In a very large container, combine sliced cucumbers and onions, and salt.
  • Cover with a generous amount of ice cubes.
  • Cover and let sit for approximately four hours.
  • Drain well and remove any ice; lightly rinse with cold water and drain well again.
  • In a large preserving kettle, combine sugar, vinegar and spices and bring to a boil.
  • Add drained vegetables and bring back to a boil.
  • Fill hot sterilized canning jars with mixture and seal.
  • Please note that I have made this recipe for ages and I do not process them; I know that goes against the grain nowadays, but that's what I do; if you wish to process them, I would recommend a 10-minute boiling water bath.
