Simple to make "homemade bread and butter pickles". Tried and true family recipe. Unique taste. Great gift if you make several jars at one time. Keep refrigerated and tie a pretty ribbon around, and even a label if you like.


  • 1 (32 oz.) jar sliced dill pickles
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard seed
  • 1/2 tsp. celery seed
  • 3 cloves split garlic


Pour pickles into colander and rinse well. Rinse jar as well. Place sugar, vinegar, mustard seed, and celery seed into boiler and bring to boil. Let boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Place pickles back in jar with garlic cloves and pour liquid over pickles. Refrigerate for several days before serving.

Servings: Varies--Makes 32 oz. jar
Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 3 mins. for brine. Refrigerate several days before serving.

I really enjoy making what I call Do Over Pickles. You save so much of the
work by buying already done pickles and changing them enough to suit


yourself and family. You are also getting them cheaper than you would
be if you bought the Kirby cukes and started out from scratch, I think.

If you grow your own cukes, that's a different story, but I don't have the
room, nor the time for growing anything, so I do the next best thing
and have fun doing it too.

Thank you for sharing another great Do Over Pickle.
