"This pickle recipe was handed down to me. I have been making these for at least 20 years from cucumbers my Dad grows in his garden. I give them to friends and family and have trouble keeping up with the orders. The recipe is the star here as these are the best bread and butter pickles I've ever found. These don't need to be refrigerated until you open a jar." — droseboom

This is a very good recipe! I make it just like you make it and sometimes I add some zing by putting one sliced with seeds habanero in each jar. This is so simple and easy. I can't believe this is the first review. Thank you for the recipe.
I have just recently started canning and making pickles. This recipe is easy to understand and follow and the end result was perfection. I agree A+ recipe. My go to for pickles from now on. And with the amount of cucumbers I got out of my garden I am going to be giving these pickles proudly as Christmas gifts. Thank you for sharing.
These are really delicious! Best pickles I've have ever had! They are like a sweet treat. I used 20 good sized pickling cucumbers which made 12 pints (could have done 11 pints). I sealed the jars for 10 min.in a canner for longer shelf life, but I don't think these will sit on the shelf long!
Great recipe. Very easy and great tasteing. I added 2 sliced onions and soaked them with the cucumbers. A+ THANKS pcush
I just used this recipe to make pickles, and they are WONDERFUL. A+ recipe!
I just tried my first batch & they were well worth the 3 week waiting period. Best B & B pickles I have had since my grandfather passed away.
Thank you for sharing!
