Five steps are all it takes to process humble cucumbers into delicious, bread and butter pickles. These sweet and savory pickles make for a great homemade gift, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t advise you to keep a jar (or three) for your own pantry for picnics, potlucks or to top off your favorite sandwich.
What you’ll need:
1. In large glass bowl, mix cucumbers, onions and garlic. Sprinkle with pickling salt and cover with layer of ice cubes; mix lightly. Let this stand for 3 hours. Meanwhile, fill boiling water canner half full with water; heat until water is simmering.
2. Drain cucumber mixture well with a strainer; discard garlic. Pack cucumber and onion slices loosely into jars.
