Bread and Butter Pickles

I really enjoy bread and butter pickles in the summer time. Here is an easy recipe.

Bread and Butter Pickles

2 lbs Pickling Cucumbers
1 Yellow Onion
½ Cup Kosher Salt
2 lbs of Ice
2 ½ Cups Apple Cider Vinegar
2 ½ Cups Granulated Sugar
1 tbsp Whole Mustard Seeds
½ tsps. Whole Celery Seeds
¾ tsps Ground Turmeric
Mason Jars or storage bowls

Start by cutting your cucumbers and onion into thin slices then place them into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle on your salt and toss the mix.

Add an equal amount of ice cubes to the large mixing bowl, toss once more. Let sit for 3 hours.

In a large saucepan add your vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, celery seeds, and turmeric. Place on the stove and bring to a simmer.

Drain and rinse your cucumber onion mix then add to the saucepan. Bring back to a simmer them remove from the stove. Let cool for a few minutes, them place in your jars or storage bowl.

They are ready to eat the next day. I prefer to let them sit in the fridge for 2-3 days before serving.

Kirby cucumbers can be found in most Asian super markets.
