Making the Bread and Butter Pickles

(scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full recipe)

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Cucumbers
  • Sweet onion
  • Kosher salt
  • Sugar
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Mustard seeds

Choosing Your Cucumbers

Both seed-in and seedless cucumbers will work great for this recipe. If you can, try to find medium-sized cucumbers so you get uniform, one-bite sized pickles.

We typically use six medium cucumbers in this recipe. Anywhere from 8-10 cups of sliced cucumbers will work perfectly.

When slicing your cucumbers, try to slice them as thin as possible. Thinner cucumbers = crispier pickle. You can use a sharp knife or mandoline for this step.

Tips for Perfect Refrigerator Pickles

  1. Soak cucumbers + onion in salt – we’re going to soak the cucumbers and onion slices in 3 tablespoons kosher salt for about 1 hour. This salt soak will draw the water out of the cucumbers, as well as flavor them. Once they’ve soaked for an hour, rinse cucumbers well with cold water.
  2. Make brine and cool – the pickle brine consists of apple cider vinegar, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and mustard seeds. The brine gets cooked on the stove just until the sugar dissolves. Cool the brine at least 30 minutes before proceeding with the last step.
  3. Divide cucumbers between jars – you can brine the cucumbers in one half gallon jar or several pint jars. Pour the brine over top, screw lids on jars, and transfer to refrigerator.
  4. Refrigerate pickles 12 hours – don’t skimp on the chill time! These pickles need at least 12 hours to develop that signature bread and butter flavor.

How to Store Pickles

We recommend storing these pickles in mason jars for easy storing and serving. Pickles will keep well in refrigerator up to 1 month. Make sure you keep them in their brine so they maintain their flavor.

Can I Can Pickles?

This is one of the most common questions we get with this recipe. The short answer is, I have not tried it myself, but I have heard from several readers who have had success canning these pickles.

If you would like to try canning this recipe, I would strongly recommend reading this canning guide first and learn how to can safely.
