My good high school friend Crystal shared her recipe with me for Home Canned Bread and Butter Pickles and I just couldn’t wait to try it myself. I have to say that I am in love with this recipe! If you have never canned I would suggest picking up a copy of the Ball Canning Book.  It is the bible when it comes to canning. I was given a copy by my neighbor in 2010 and I love this book.  It is full of great tips and ticks for canning.

Be sure to read about head space and proper techniques for canning.  When you find yourself in a sea of cucumbers from your summer garden this recipe is a sure way to use them. You will be prepared for the winter months by having your own Home Canned Bread and Butter Pickles.  I say roll up your sleeves, crank the music and get to canning!

It is a great way to save money by gardening and to can your own produce. I love to make my own bread and butter pickles. They are perfect to enjoy with a burger and then all winter long.
