Canning Bread and Butter Pickles

Canning Bread and Butter Pickles

We harvested another round of cucumbers from our garden and wanted to bring you along in our process of canning bread and butter pickles.  We decided to preserve these as bread and butter pickles since we previously canned dill pickles.  We weren’t able to find a recipe in the Blue Ball Canning Book for these pickles and therefore had to review several recipes online and develop our own bread and butter pickle recipe.  As you scour the internet, you will find many variations to this recipe.  We found many recipes where people made refrigerator pickles and did not can the pickles, however, we wanted to find a canning recipe so that we could add these pickles to our long-term food storage in our pantry.  The great thing is that any pickle recipe can be canned.
