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!
OK - yum!!!!! But I do love bread and butter pickles! I followed this recipe to a T (didn't decrease the sugar at all). I'm a Southerner at heart and love the sweetness. They were quick and easy although I did try doubling and tripling which caused me to have to microwave them a bit longer. I tried making them with and without garlic and didn't notice a big difference but didn't add that much garlic. I also tried totally peeling the cukes as I felt the skins were a bit tough but they just didn't look the same. After filling the hot jars I stuck them in a boiling water bath for about 10 minutes and they sealed immediately so I can enjoy throughout the winter. I used regular cukes (not English) and sweet Vidalia onions. IN fact I may have added a bit more onion than called for. Next time I may add a bit of sweet red pepper for color. I gave some to my friend and she said her mom CRIED when she ate them as they reminded her of the pickles she helped her Mom make when she was a kid. That's a true testimony!
These pickles are absolutely delicious and easy. I only used 2/3 cup sugar for a little less sweetness. In a couple batches I added a variety of peppers from my garden. Great recipe! One more thing it says 1 cucumber and I used about 5 pickle size cucs.
Really great. Exactly what I wanted and took less than no time to make. I did can half the recipe in a boilng water bath and those were a bit limp when I opened them later but the ones that were not processed were fantastic. I'll definitely be making them again.
Wonderful! Didn't have any of the "right" ingredients and it still worked!! This was sooooo easy. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to use a lid so I used my vented pampered chef micro safe container. I used zucchini (which is abundant in my garden right now) mustard powder for mustard seed 1/2 the sugar (because it was noted you could and we are on a budget) cider vinegar for white vinegar pickling spice for celery seed turmeric and a pinch of curry powder (because I love it). And it was still fabulous. So happy I'm going to try it on carrots tonight!!:o)
We have never made pickles before and this was the easiest and most delious bread and butter pickles that we could ever imagine. They taste like mom used to make! I was giving the receipe to a friend and they don't have any jars do you suppose you could just use a tight fitting rubbermaid bowl or something like that. We will be making these again and there is no need to buy Bread and Butter Pickles in the store again.
