I made these last summer in my first attempt to jar food, which actually turned out to be a wonderful experience! These pickles were absolutely awesome and really easy to make! The only thing I did different was can them. Everyone that had them thought they were wonderful and I had many requests for more jars. I only made 1 case of small jars and 3 large mason jars full, but this coming summer I am planning to be a little more ambitious and make more. I did make one variation on some of the jars which I think came out fantastic and that was that I had dehydrated red cayenne peppers and I added 1 to some of the smaller jars and 3 or 4 to the large jars. Not only did it add color to the jar, but they really tasted great, especially if you are a spice fan! I added more onion to my pickles as that was the way that I remembered them from my childhood. My Nanny made some of the best Bread and Butter pickles that I have ever tasted....these are certainly close to her recipe!:)



These turned out great! Following others' advice, I only used 1/2 cup of sugar (which was plenty), and I added 1 clove of fresh garlic (minced) and 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes. Microwaved for 8 minutes, and they taste fantastic! Thanks for the recipe!!



I never liked bread and butter pickles until I went to Lambert's restuarant. I tried their's and fell in love. I craved them day after day after that, but the restaurant is 2 hours from my town. I made this recipe and behold! I now do not have to drive any distance to enjoy them. I signed up with this website just to write this review! I mean it...TOP NOTCH!
