Our daily tips newsletter has generous subscribers that often send in their favorite recipes. Ginny sent in this great pickle recipe, and below is one of ours.


Here is an old fashioned pickle recipe that is just wonderful that I use. It has a bit more spices in it, and can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 months. We freeze in containers, and then food vac them for the freezer for longer storage.

Freezer/Refrigerator Bread & Butter Pickles

4 Cups of Sugar

4 Cups of Vinegar

1/3 Cup of Kosher Salt

1 tsp of Celery Seed

1 tsp of Mustard Seed

1 tsp of Turmeric

1 Gal Pickles sliced = 4 Quarts (we us Mandolin to slice- goes very quick)

4 Large Onions sliced

Vidalia or Walla Walla Sweet onions

Slice enough pickles & Onion to fill a gallon Glass container. Alternate onion and pickles. Mix sugar and Vinegar etc. separately be sure to stir the sugar until dissolved, before adding and pouring over the pickle and onions. Do not heat or cook. Pour brine over the pickles. Refrigerate for 48 Hours in your glass jar with cover. Stir the pickles after 24 hours to mix well. Place in freezer containers and freeze, and then when frozen use the food vac. Without the food vac, they just wouldn't last as long in the freezer. Will stay crisp in the refrigerator for 4 months or in freezer if vacced indefinitely. Turmeric will turn your plastic bowl yellow. Using the waffle cut on the Mandolin also makes for a much crunchier pickle.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
