Made easy! My Agritopia Farm CSA had so many cucumbers it wasn’t possible for us to eat all of them. I thought why not turn these delicious cucumbers into pickles, not just any pickles, but bread and butter pickles!

I found this recipe for  Refrigerator Bread and Butter Pickles on

1.5 cups sugar (I used raw sugar)
1.5 cups vinegar (white distilled vinegar)
1/4 cup canning salt (Use Diamond Salt)
1/2 tablespoon mustard seed
1/2 tablespoon celery seed
1/2 tablespoon turmeric
1/4 cup of Sweet onions
8 small cucumbers

Makes one quart size jar. I recommend using sanitizing the jar before using it.
Wash thinly slice cucumbers. Layer in glass jars with onion as desired. Combine above ingredients – sugar, vinegar, salt, mustard seed, celery seed and turmeric.
Heat slightly until sugar is dissolved. Let cool, then pour over cucumber slices. Cover and keep refrigerated. Let stand a day before starting to use.
