My Grandma passed away a few years ago, but I’m lucky enough to have inherited her recipes. This weekend, I decided to try making one of her specialties: Bread and Butter Pickles. The recipe is from this 1950’s Kerr Home Canning Book.
I love that the book is all splattered from years of use. She’d written notes to herself in the margins. I feel happy just seeing her handwriting.
I sliced the cucumbers, onions and peppers, salted them and let them stand for several hours.
After rinsing and draining, I added the veggies to the boiling mixture of vinegar, sugar and spices.
Then I processed them for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.
They turned out great! I think my Grandma would be proud. I felt like she was with me in the kitchen when I was making these. Finally, Bread and Butter Pickles, just like Grandma used to make!
Do you have any treasured recipes that have been handed down to you?
