Homemade Pickles... the Ankarsrum with the Vegetable Slicer attachment is great for slicing cucumbers and other vegetables. Bread and Butter pickles are a great way to use up those funny shaped or large cucumbers that don't work well with many recipes.
Easy Peasy Bread & Butter Pickles
-10 cups sliced cucumbers, cover with water and sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit 2 hrs - overnight.
-3 cups vinegar
- 4 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp tumeric
- 1 tsp mustard seed
- 1 tsp celery seed
- slices onion (optional)
Drain cukes and place in sterilized jars. I like to lay a slice of onion on top of the cucumbers before sealing jar.
Bring brine to a boil and pour over cucumbers and seal. Allow to sit at least 2 wks before enjoying for best flavor.
