Blue Ribbon Recipe

Homemade pickles are delicious on a burger, a sandwich, or even just to munch on. We loved the pleasant, tart taste of these. They're crunchy, sweet, and sour. You taste a slight hint of the apple cider vinegar. Easy to make, these bread and butter pickles will be a staple in your fridge. The longer they sit in their juices, the better they get.

Note: If you can't find pickling cucumbers, buy 8 whole cucumbers, about 7-8 inches each, and cut in half. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
