Bread and Butter Pickles

bb-pickles1This is an old time recipe. I believe it came from one of the girls that I worked with at the telephone company. This cut down to 1/4th because I only make small batches since there are only 2 of us now.

You can actually use any kind of cucumber but I like to use the English ones because the are easy to find any time of the year. This time I used red onions because it was what I had on hand.

Sometimes I play around with the spices by adding a tsp. of commercial pickling spice to make the mix look interesting in the jars. As long as you have the basics you are actually good to go.
