• Bread & Butter Pickles


The Ultimate Sandwich Pickle

I love these pickles, they have a perfect balance of sweet and sour, with an extra crunch from the onion. Pair with your favorite sandwich or summertime burger and you’ve got a match made in heaven.


Bread & Butter Pickles


  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons mustard seeds, whole
  • 1  1/2 pounds cucumbers
  • 1  1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 cup sweet onions, sliced thin
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds


Slice cucumbers to about 1/8-inch thick on a mandolin. Combine with salt.

Chill for one hour. Drain and rinse.

Combine sugar and remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan, bring to a simmer (making sure the sugar has dissolved). Remove from heat.

Place the cucumber slices in a jar. Pour the hot vinegar over the cucumbers, allow to cool for one hour.

Cover and refrigerate.
