Bread and Butter Pickles
At the request of 2Beers…..enjoy!

Bread and Butter Pickles

4 lbs of 4 to 6 inch pickling cucumbers, cut into ¼ “slices
2 lbs onions, thinly sliced (approx. 8 small)
½ c. canning salt
2c. sugar
2 T. mustard seed
2 t. turmeric
2 t. celery seed
1 t. ginger
1 t. peppercorns
3c. vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar).
Combine cucumber slices and onion slices in a large bowl, layering with salt; cover with ice cubes. Let stand for 1 ½ hours. Drain; rinse; drain again. Combine remaining ingredients in a large sauce pot; bring to a boil. Add drained cucumbers and onions and return to a boil. Pack hot pickles and liquid into hot jars, leaving ¼” headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust 2 piece caps. Process 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner.

Yield- about 7 pints

Books got somebody writin' 'em and tryin' to entertain ya.
Life is more like a set of Legos.
Unless you take care of 'em, you lose a few pieces and you end up steppin' on 'em with bare feet.
You gotta take care of your life."
