How to Make Traditional Bread & Butter Pickles

Step-by-Step

  1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl, combine cucumbers, onions and salt. Mix well, cover with cold water and let stand at room temperature for two hours. Transfer to a colander placed over a sink, rinse with cool running water and drain thoroughly.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare canner, jars and lids.
  3. In a large stainless steel saucepan, combine vinegar, sugar, mustard seeds, celery seeds, ginger and turmeric. Bring to a boil over med-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in vegetables and return to a boil to vegetables are somewhat soft cooked throughout.
  4. Pack vegetables into hot jars to within a generous 1/2" of top of jar. Ladle hot pickling liquid into jars to cover vegetables, leaving 1/2" headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace if necessary by adding pickling liquid. Wipe rims. Center lid on jar. Screw band down until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip-tight.
  5. Place jars in canner, ensuring they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil and process for 10 minutes. Turn off and remove canner lid. Wait 5 minutes, then remove jars, cool and store.
