We went to my friend Angela's house in Monetta on Sunday. Angela has a wonderfully relaxing pool and a wonderful husband named Steve. She also has a great garden and fruit trees in her yard. We came home with some cucumbers, pears, and crabapples. I'm not a fan of cucumbers - but I do like pickles and Angela recommended this recipe: http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/bread-and-butter-pickles-ii/Detail.aspx
It was easy to follow and made some delicious Bread and Butter pickles. They remind me of generations of women in my family who made this kind of pickle. I didn't inherit their pickle-making talents, so I was very happy to find a recipe with such nice results. My family breathed a collective sigh of relief.
