Bread and Butter Pickles

I’ve had this recipe for so long that I don’t remember where I got it.  I haven’t made them in years but I hope to one of these days before too long.


Bread and Butter Pickles


4 quarts thinly sliced cucumbers

6 medium onions

1/3 cup pickling salt

5 cups sugar

3 cups apple cider vinegar

1 1/2  Tablespoons celery seed

1 1/2  Tablespoons tumeric

2  Tablespoons mustard seeds

Crushed ice

Mix together cucumbers, onions, and salt.  Cover with crushed ice and let set for 3 hours. You can use an ice chest for this.

Mix sugar, vinegar, celery seeds, turmeric, and mustard seed.  Transfer cucumber mixture to a large nonreactive pot.  Pour liquid mixture over them and bring them to a boil.  Put them in sterilized jars and seal.  The pickles are ready to eat as soon as they are cool.
