    Default Bread and Butter Pickles

    Order nail wraps from a Jamberry Independent Consultant
    15 cups sliced pickling cucumbers
    2 sliced onions (thinly sliced)
    1/4 cup pickling salt
    4 cups coarsely crushed ice
    2 1/2 cups cider vinegar
    2 1/2 cups sugar
    3/4 tsp. turmeric
    1/2 tsp. celery seed
    1 Tbsp. mustard seed

    Combine cucumbers, onions, salt, and ice in a large bowl or pot. Put a weight on and let stand for three hours. *I mixed it all well, put a plate on top, and put the jug of vinegar on it* Drain well.

    In a large pot combine vinegar, sugar, turmeric, celery seed, and mustard seed. Add the cucumbers and onions. Put pot over medium heat until *almost* boiling, but don't let it boil. Put in sterile canning jars, then process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

    They're so easy to make, and I can't believe how crisp and crunchy they come out. The ultimate compliment was from my neighbor - he's about 70 and a big gardener....he told me tonight that they're better than the pickles his MOM used to make. If they're better than mom's then you know they're darn good!

    Gosh, I don't remember....I think 8-10 ish. I made a few batches early this summer, I think I got 9 really packed jars (that could have easily been 10) one time and 8 the other.

    Thank you! I suppose I have to wait for more cukes. Just harvested my first one (ever!) yesterday. I've had two previously unsuccessful attempts at growing cukes. Attempt #1? Too wet in a low spot in my yard and a really wet spring, that I'm quite confident rotted the seeds in the ground.

    Attempt #2? Last summer, when NOTHING grew for me.

    Do you slice them normally, or do you have a fancy crinkle cut slicer? Does it matter?

    I just slice them with a knife. My mom has one of those crinkle cutter things and I used it once for making these pickles. More work for the same outcome...I just slice them.

    I just didn't know if there was some benefit to slicing them with a crinkle cutter, like it held flavor better or something. I'm a novice!
