    Spicy Bread And Butter Pickles! These pickles are sweet, and tangy, and a bit spicy. These are not your usual bread and butter Pickles, so beware... Ingredients • 3 pounds cucumbers, sliced thin (this is very important!) •2 sweet onions, sliced thin (again, important!) •⅓ cup pickling salt •3 cups apple cider vinegar •2 cups granulated sugar •2 Tbsp. turmeric •2 Tbsp. yellow mustard seeds •3 tsp. coriander seeds •2 tsp. celery seeds •2 Tbsp. pickling spice •2 Serrano peppers, pricked with a toothpick •2 red jalapeños, sliced thin Instructions 1. Put the cucumbers in a big bowl and pour the pickling salt over them. Cover with 3 cups of ice and set aside for about 4 hours to make its own brine. Drain and rinse well. 2. Put the jars into the dishwasher on a rinse cycle and put the lids into simmering water so that they are clean and hot when you start filling the jars. 3. Fill a stockpot or canner with enough water to cover the jars by 2 inches and bring the water to a boil. 4. In a 5- to 6-quart heavy pot, bring cucumbers, onions, 1 cup water, vinegar, sugar, spices and Serrano peppers to a boil. Boil 5 to 10 minutes after boiling starts. 5. Place 3-5 rings of red jalapeno into the bottom of each jar. 6. Carefully ladle the hot mixture into hot jars leaving ½-inch space on top. 7. Wipe the rims and sides of jars before using tongs to top with a hot lid. 8. Screw the lids on firmly and place jars into canner and boil for 10 minutes. 9. Remove jars using tongs and place on a towel-lined jelly roll pan or countertop to cool. 10. Over the next 12-24 hours you’ll hear a “ping” as the lids go concave signaling a secure seal. If the lids do not go concave, refrigerate the jar and use it first. 11. Store securely sealed jars in a cool, dark place for up to a year. thanks to: http://apassionateplate.com/bread-butter-pickles/
