Bread and Butter Pickles

Christine Whisenhunt


This was a recipe my mom and grandmother used to make. They are yummy! I haven't made this yet myself, but I have eaten plenty of them! LOL If you love bread and butter pickles, you will love these, and I was excited to see how easy the recipe is when I found it. Even I can do this, and I'm going to! I hope you do too! Enjoy!
