A little research shows that this pickle recipe is pretty close to other bread and butter pickle recipes, only this recipe uses more sugar, and less mustard seed than the others found online, in books, and in magazines.
I’m not sure if more sugar is the secret ingredient that makes these pickles so addictive, but if you’re going to give them to friends, you might want to give them two jars. Plus the recipe. It’s only right.
