Bread-and-Butter Pickle Chips
Posted By Sherri Brooks Vinton On September 1, 2011 @ 2:36 pm In Canning and Preserving Recipes,Savor and Flavor | No Comments
Looking for a first pickle to make? Pick this recipe. It’s easy and delicious — every year I make a couple of batches, to keep friends and family in supply. Kirby is the go-to cucumber here, and sweet onions such as Vidalia work well if they’re local. Excerpted from Put ‘em Up!

Makes about 7 pints
Layer the cukes and onions with 1/2 cup of the salt in a large bowl and cover with a layer of ice cubes. Set aside for 2 hours. Drain and rinse in a colander.
Combine the vinegar, water, sugar, mustard seed, peppercorns, celery seed, turmeric, and the remaining 1 tablespoon salt in a large nonreactive saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the drained vegetables and return to a boil, stirring to ensure that all of the vegetables are heated through. Remove from the heat.
Refrigerate: Ladle into bowls or jars. Cool, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.
Can: Use the boiling-water method. Ladle into clean, hot pint canning jars, covering the pickles by 1/4 inch with liquid. Leave 1/4 inch of headspace between the top of the liquid and the lid. Release trapped air. Wipe the rims clean; center lids on the jars and screw on jar bands. Process for 10 minutes. Turn off heat, remove canner lid, and let jars rest in the water for 5 minutes. Remove jars and set aside for 24 hours. Check seals, then store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year.
