Last night I decided to make a batch of bread and butter pickles. This is a 1930's recipe.
So I sliced up the cucumbers with a mandolin.
Mixed with green pepper and sliced onion. Then tossed with plenty of salt to remove some water.
The salt is all rinced off after about an hour. Its just to rove moisture from the cucumbers.
Then the brine. Its a boiled brine.
3 cups white vinegar
1 cup cider vinegar
3 cups is white sugar
2 tbsp mustard seeds
3 bay leaves
1 tbsp tumeric
Then it's a matter of canning. Some folks pressure can, that's ideal, but I just heat the jars in a water bath, stuff them, then pour the hot brine in and put the lids on.
Anyway, that's it. Bread and Butter pickles.
