At our annual neighborhood Christmas party a couple of years ago, our friend Emily gave JR and me pickles. Pickles that, as our supply dwindled, caused me to ration pickle servings in our house. They were that good.
Fortunately, she also gave us the recipe for the pickles (thank you, Emily!), yet, somehow, I had neglected to make them. Until last week.
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.
