Bread and Butter Pickles


So simple to make you'll never want store bought again


2 pounds pickling cucumbers, sliced
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
2 red jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced into rings
3 tablespoons kosher salt
2 cups distilled white vinegar
2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup water

2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tablespoon mustard seed
1 teaspoon celery seeds
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Add all ingredients to list

Combine cucumbers, onion, and peppers in a bowl; pour kosher salt over the top and stir to coat completely. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 hours. Rinse cucumber mixture in a colander under cold water until all salt is washed away, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.

Stir vinegar, sugar, water, garlic, mustard seed, celery seed, peppercorns, turmeric, and ground cloves together in a saucepan; bring to a simmer and cook until brine flavors combine, about 2 minutes. Add cucumber mixture to brine; heat until almost boiling, remove from heat, and cool completely. Transfer to jars and store in the refrigerator.
