My Memama (mom’s mother) used to have shelves and shelves of canned goods in her basement for as long as I can remember, her bread and butter pickles were among my favs! Now that I have cucumbers coming out of my eyeballs I thought I would share her pickles. They rock!!
As I have mentioned I have cucumbers coming from every direction! I wanted to use some befor they went bad so I busted out Mema’s Pickle Recipe, these are just delish and I love the fact that as a little girl every meal I can remember included a relish tray and these pickles were always the star of the plate.
Slice your cucumbers (I used 8) then dice 1 large sweet onion. Sprinkle well with salt and place in colander to drain excess water. Top with ice cubes. Allow to drain at least 3 hrs. (You will NOT believe the amount of water that comes out of them!)
Then pack in your sterilized jars.
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp celery seed
1 T mustard seed
Place in fridge and enjoy!
