Refrigerator Bread & Butter Pickles

Written By: Chris - Aug• 13•12

The other day a friend of mine (Jennifer L!) gave me a few very long, cucumbers that she had from her garden.  I love them, but was thinking about what I could do different with them as they are plentiful right now in season.  I got to thinking about some pickles that we used to enjoy at one of Bill’s aunts houses when we would visit while we were first dating… I dug and dug and found her recipe!  We used to snack on them along with a slice of cheddar cheese on top of a Wheat Thin!

Give these a try.  They are very easy to make and taste delicious!


8 Cups Cucumbers, sliced
1 Cup sweet Onion, sliced

2 Cups Xylo (Sugar works if you want it!)
1 Cup White Vinegar
1 teaspoon Mustard Seed (I used powder as I was out of seeds)
1 teaspoon Celery Seed

after washing and slicing the cucumbers and onions, sprinkle them with 2 to 3 teaspoons of salt and allow to sit on the counter for about two hours

Add onion to the cucumbers near the end of resting and Combine other ingredients in a sauce pan.  Bring to a boil

Pour over cucumbers and allow to cool somewhat

Cover and refrigerate in an air tight container. Allow to chill over night.
