    Bread & Butter Pickles

    Try these tangy-sweet bread-and-butter pickles on a tuna sandwich or chopped in a tartar sauce for sautéed fish fillets.

    Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 pounds pickling cucumbers, or other small cucumbers, cut into 1/8- to 1/4-inch-thick slices (about 9 cups)
    • 1 tablespoon pickling spice
    • 1 tablespoon turmeric
    • 3 cups distilled white vinegar, or cider vinegar
    • 3 cups water
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon sea salt

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Divide cucumber slices among 6 pint-size (2-cup) canning jars or similar-size tempered-glass or heatproof-plastic containers with lids. Add 1/2 teaspoon pickling spice and 1/2 teaspoon turmeric to each jar.
    Step 2
    Combine vinegar, 3 cups water, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar and salt dissolve. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
    Step 3
    Carefully fill jars (or containers) with brine to within 1/2 inch of the rim, covering the cucumbers completely. (Discard any leftover brine.)
    Step 4
    Place the lids on the jars (or containers). Refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
