How to Make Peggi's Bread & Butter Pickles
- Place cucumbers, peppers & onions in large bowl that isn't aluminum.
- Cover with salt & stir well.
- Put enough ice water on this just to cover, but not to where it is packed tight.
- Place plate on top of this to keep the veggies under the water.
- Let set on counter for 4 hours.
- While waiting, make solution & set aside to cool.
- Drain & rinse cucumber mixture after 4 hours & place in jars, but don't pack tightly.
- Pour cooled solution over these, using long plastic canning thingy to go around inside of jar, up against the glass, to remove all air bubbles.
- Put lid on & place in fridge.
