Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than store bought I never liked Bread and Butter pickles myself but decided to make them for my sister as she loves them.. I wanted to sample them before giving them to her. I thought they were amazing. No sugary too sweet flavor but just right. i made several more batches for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy and easy Great pickles! I'm wondering, though, if I can put onions in the next batch, like some other recipes? Will lit cause any problems? I really miss having the onions in the homemade B&B pickles.
