Bread and Butter Pickles (Microwave)


  • 1 large cucumber, sliced in 1/4 inch rounds (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced into thin rounds (about 3/4 cup)
  • Ad
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1/4 cup celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric


Mix together all ingredients in a 2 qt. microwave bowl. Microwave on high 7-8 minutes, stirring twice or until cucumber is crisp-tender and onion is translucent. Ladle into a glass jar (rinsed in hot water to prevent cracking); cover. Cool slightly and refrigerate. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
