My son and I made bread and butter pickles the other day.  Here are some pics of our day.

Start off with 11 pounds of sliced cucumbers:


Add the spice packet to the vinigar and sugar...lots and lots of sugar...



Put the canner on to boil and sterilize the jars in the dishwasher...



Once the brind is to a boil pack the jars and top off with hot liquid, add to the boil canner and process to the directions.


The seasoning packet says it does 7 quarts, and sure enough I ended up with 7 quarts!  Can't wait to try them!!

I am so jealous!  I love these...reminds me of my grandma and when she used to can everything that came out of her 'garden'.  Her garden was big enough to be called a farm these days.

o.o *drool* I love Bread and Butter Pickles! My entire family hates them besides myself and my grandmother. She would give them to me as a baby and I guess the sweetness got me to like them. Haha we like to gross everyone out and eat them with biscuits and gravy.

Some day when I have a kitchen I can work in (my current area isn't that... workable.) I'm so going to try this!

Thanks all. 

We have acerage but it is all rock...no viable dirt.  We are working on a few plots to create dirt but in the mean time we have to plant our garden in tanks.  The good side of the tanks is that it keeps the garden manageable.  The cucumbers are rolling in at a steady pace so I can get some for salads and a batch to pickle here and there.  Next will be the roma tomatoes.  They are just starting to turn red....when they do - I will be up to my elbows in tomatoes!!

I love all pickles.  I prefer sweet over dill but we will make both.  I remember eating my grandma's BB pickles that she made when I was a kid.  I love them with fried potatoes.

These look lovely.  I remember when we did bread and butter pickles and we always added onions.  I love pickled onions.

Yummeh! Good job!

I'm making mine this weekend.  I buy my cukies from the local farmer's market as I do not have enough garden space for my own.

Cousins of our once did pickled green cherry tomatoes...sounds sick but they were very good!

I wish we had a farmers market around here.  They say there is one but it is 2 stands - 1 guy brings stuff up from down south and the other is an amish stand.  I refuse to buy from either...I support local farmers, but the amish around these parts have a reputation of putting their outhouses waste on their gardens when they clean them out...can we all say EEEEWWWW   Lips sealed  They are not the most sanitary folks.

How do you cut them to make them ridged like that? Is it a special knife?
