Microwave Bread & Buttter Pickles

Patti Smith

By

My future mother-in-law made these sweet pickles and onions the first time I met her. They tasted just like the bread & butter pickles my grandmother used to put up with her garden cucumbers, but without all the hard work and canning. They are so quick and easy, and disappear just as fast as you make them.

***Note: Hubby is diabetic, so I make these pickles for him with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup Splenda. He says he can't taste the difference.
