Bread and Butter pickles
but these went fast ... so sticking to just these..
hope someone likes them.
BREAD AND BUTTER PICKLES
6 QTS CUKES
6 lg. ONIONS white if you have them
1 grated or chopped fine large green pepper
1 chopped red pepper is nice too but too high here right now
1 C. PLAIN SALT ( has to be non iodized as the other will turn the veggies dark )
cover with cold water
LET SET OVER NITE in fridge AND DRAIN GOOD ( I rinse once )
6 C SUGAR 3 white 3 light brown
1 1/2 QTS. cider VINEGAR
1 1/2 tablespoons MUSTARD SEED
1 TABLESPOON CELERY SEED
1/4 - 1/3 TEAS.CAYENNE PEPPER
1 tbl. tumeric
15-20 whole cloves
stir this as you bring it to a boil in a large pot...
add the drained veggies (see below if there are too many veg.)and bring back to just a boil and remove from heat.
quickly pack the pickles snuggly in the hot (sterilized) jars and fill to just below the top
with the hot liquid and seal
I wasn't able to get all my vegtables covered with the liquid ... when it was time to heat them....
but once the 1st batch was in the jars I had plenty of liquid left to repeat that step.
a little milder is all.
pickles will be good even when finished.... but will get better with time

looks like a great recipe Ron! my aunt used to make all kinds of pickles for our big family dinners, but I never got a recipe. I'll have to try out this one
That looks good Ron. My wife used to make them, but she hasn't made any for several years. Now you've got my mouth watering.
Yup, must be a family tradition because I remember Mom making them too. Ron, you're bringing back a peice of historical tradition here. Good one.
well glad you all had folks that made them for you too,,
I edited that post as I had forgotten to put down cover with water before leaving overnite..
