How to Make Ellen's Bread And Butter Pickles
- Slice the cucumbers and onions into a LARGE bowl, cover with ICE water and add the salt, let this sit OVERNIGHT.
- In the morning, drain off the water, and rinse and let drain well. Meanwhile, in a large pot add the vinegar, sugar and pickling spices and turmeric. Bring to a boil, add the cucumbers and onions, and boil 5 minutes. DO NOT STAND OVER THE POT WHEN IT IS BOILING!!!!
- Once 5 minutes is up, ladle into sterilized half pint or pint canning jars, wipe the jar tops, and put on a lid, and a screw band. Place in a pot of BOILING water for 10 minutes. Count the time AFTER the water comes to a boil when you put the jars in. Once 10 minutes is up, remove from the water, and set on the counter covered with a towel. You will hear a "POPPING" sound, this means the jars have sealed correctly. Let sit for 24 hours!! Once cooled, REMOVE the screw band ONLY, and place in a cool dark place up to 2 years!!! Once opened though, store in the fridge!!
