Grandma’s Bread & Butter Pickles, 1961

February 28, 2018

Grandma made several kinds of pickles. My favorite was the dill, never the sweet. She also made a thing called “Bread & Butter”. I don’t know what Bread & Butter means, but I was not a fan.

That was when I was little. I am a big fan now.

Grandma apparently knew that everyone knew the basics of canning pickles, so she doesn’t bother to go into the details of preparing the jars and lids and of processing the pickles. Even I have a Betty Crocker cookbook and could figure it out.

And there you have it. Go make yourself some pickels.
