RECIPE: Bread & Butter Pickles

Bread and butter pickles are one of my absolute favourites, I always have a jar on hand and usually more then one. I usually replace fresh cucumber with these little beauties in sandwiches. I find that there’s always a half a cucumber in the back of my fridge going off so why not use pickles instead. I also use these pickles on my cheeseburgers and in toasties like the Cubano.

  • 8 large cucumbers
  • 1 brown onion
  • 10 peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp mustard seeds
  • 1.5L white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup salt
  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
  • 1 cup sugar

Slice cucumbers on an angle and put into a colander over a bowl along with the onion and sprinkle over salt. Leave to salt over night. Heat vinegar, sugar, peppercorns, mustard seeds and turmeric until sugar dissolves. Rinse and place in sterilized jars pour over hot vinegar, seal and store in a dark cool place for a week before using to infuse flavours. Refrigerate once opened.
