Bread & Butter Pickles

A blast from the past....I remember growing up on these.  My mom and her family would make all kinds of pickles each summer.  I found one of my moms old cookbooks where some of her recipes were published in it.

  • 5qts, sliced cucumbers
  • 6 med. white onions sliced
  • 2 green peppers
  • 2 garlic gloves
  • 1/3 c coarse medium salt
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp tumeric
  • 2 tsp celery seed
  • 2 teaspoon mustard seed

Don't peal cucumbers, slice thin, add onions, peppers, whole garlic cloves, and salt. Cover with crushed ice and mix well. Let stand about 3 hours or longer. Drain well. Combing remaining ingredients. Pour over cucumber mixture. Heat just to a boil. Then pour into sterilized jars and seal.  Makes 10 pints.
