I canned bread and butter pickles with yellow squash and zucchini, red sweet peppers and onion and they were really good!

The bread and butter pickle recipe in todays post is an excellent recipe. I have used this to make the pickles by doubling the recipe's liquid ingredients and adding squash, celery, cauliflower, and carrots to make the blend.

These were excellent and very different from the regular bread and butter pickles, sometimes I add a little extra spices to make a different taste. I sometimes add a little extra sugar.

I cut up the cucumbers and onions, added salt and put in a large stainless steel bowl and refrigerated overnight, as I did not have time to cover them with ice and drain in 1 1/2 hrs as most recipes suggest, then prepare the water bath. Can you skip the ice down step? Or do I need to ice cukes and onions before canning?

You can skip this step but they probably won't turn out quite the same. There is usually a reason behind the steps in a recipe and most of all a canning recipe. The ice and brine are part of the flavoring and crisping of the pickle.

You could also do a search and see if you can find a recipe a little more suitable to your time schedule that you need to work within. There are about as many recipes as there are people that cook or can!

After canning bread and butter pickles, the lid has popped, and they are at room temperature. Do you store them upside down in the pantry?
