Quick Bread n' Butter Pickles

These pickles involve little prep and little pickling time but not little flavor! I got this recipe from my friend who is a fantastic cook. These pickles are not canned or preserved and I do not know how long they will keep in the refrigerator. My suggestion is to add them to everything (salads! sandwiches! side dishes!) and then you'll have no need to be nervous about their longevity.

Quick Bread n' Butter Pickles
Ingredients:
  • 3 1/2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 1/2 cups hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard seed
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 3 cucumbers, sliced (how thin you want is up to you)
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp red chili flakes (you can omit if you don't like spicy)
Directions:
Slice the cucumbers to your desired thickness. I used a squiggle cutter.

Divide your cucumber slices evenly into jars as best as you can. I used 3 quart sized Ball mason jars

Pour the pickling liquid over the sliced cucumbers, making sure they're submerged

Fridge for at least half an hour, the longer the better! I put these on a tuna melt and the slight heat and sweetness worked nicely with the cheese and the bite of red onion (I mix red onion into my tuna salad).
