Has anyone ever pickled bread and butter pickles with a mix of cucumbers and squash?
By natalie from UT
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.
How do I make bread and butter pickles?
By sherry from KY
Hi I made some last year and they turned out really good. Here is a recipe with step by step directions from my recipe blog.
Bread & Butter Pickles
This is a great site. Thanks so much for sharing this. A nice beginners site as well.
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?

Combine cucumbers, onions, and salt. Cover with water and set aside for 2 hours. Drain.
Wash and slice cucumbers as thin as possible. Combine with onions, green peppers and salt; mix and let stand 3 hours.
In large bowl, combine cucumbers, onions, salt and garlic. Stir in ice and enough cold water to cover. Let stand about 4 hours or overnight.
