These are a fun cucumber to grow,
and have produced better, in the garden, than our English cucumbers. They do not taste like lemons, but have a nice fresh taste with a crunchy texture
so I thought they might be good for pickles 🙂
We used the same recipe from last year and doubled it, mixing Lemon cucumbers with a couple English.
I ran out of peppers so made them with out, hoping it wont change the flavor too much…
Bread & Butter Pickles
8 medium cucumbers
2 green peppers
8 small white onions
½ cup salt
5 cups sugar
1½ teaspoons turmeric
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 tsp celery seed
2 tablespoons mustard seed
5 cups apple cider vinegar
Cucumbers, Onions & Green Peppers chopped up mixed with salt and a few handfuls of ice, cover & let it sit for 3 hrs
Drain and mix together with Pickling Syrup
Heat through but don’t boil.
Prepare your jars & lids, fill them and use a hot water bath to seal the jars.
Wait 5-6 weeks before opening, if you can 🙂
Here’s where I found this recipe..
