With pickles almost growing out of our ears here at my household, I decided to whip up some amazing bread and butter pickles.

I had been craving them ever since seeing them at the farmers market, but there was no way I was paying 15 bucks for a jar! That was then and still is daylight robbery!

I know we should be all supporting the local farmers but 15 bucks for a jar of pickles … no thanks. I will support them in other ways!

The recipe I am sharing with you all today is adapted from to make it more my style. The original recipe was a little to sweet for me.

Look how amazing my homegrown pickles are. I have never had them look this good. Usually the bugs get to them before I can. It’s going to be a great pickle year for us, that I can be sure of.
