Easy Bread and Butter Pickle Recipe

Bread and Butter Pickle Recipe1

Back to school season is here, and if you are packing your kids’ (or your husband’s) lunches this year, chances are that you will be making a lot of sandwiches. Instead of sending your kids to school with store-bought pickles, why not make your own? These Homemade Bread and Butter Pickles are healthier than store-bought pickles, they’re easy to make, and of course, they’re delicious as well!

Store-bought pickles can be kind of hit or miss. Sometimes they are good, but you always run the risk of running into pickles that are soggy, too sour, too bitter, too salty or too sweet. Plus, they usually have weird chemicals and additives in them that you’d rather not feed to your family if you can help it. This Homemade Bread and Butter Pickle recipe only contains healthy, familiar ingredients you can serve to your family without hesitation. Just like other pickle recipes, you can modify the ingredients slightly to fit your family’s unique tastes and preferences.

Bread and Butter Pickle Recipe

This Homemade Bread and Butter Pickle recipe uses the water bath canning technique, which is probably the easiest way to make your own homemade pickles. Make them once and it won’t be long until you add them to the regular lunch rotation, along with your Baked Apple Chips or Baked Zucchini Parmesan Chips for a side.

Your kids want lunches that are delicious. You want lunches that are healthy and easy. These Homemade Bread and Butter Pickles fit the bill perfectly. Try them today!
