In a pickled state these days

We didn’t grow cucumbers this year but that hasn’t kept us from buying them to make our famous Bread and Butter Pickles.

You ask: “Why are your pickles famous?”

Because we say so!

I think they are so easy because you don’t have to cook anything except for the brine. (We use the Ball Pickling Mix.) So after you pack the jars you simply add the brine.

The last step is to process them in a water bath. Six weeks later you have lovely pickles.
