Hamburgers are a bread and butter offering for July 4 grill outs. So why not pair the meat with homemade Bread ‘n Butter pickles? Don’t be scared. This recipe is easy and fun. Our steps require just a few minutes of prep work and a whole lot of sitting around.
It is best to make this recipe a week ahead, but you can also get away with just 24-48 hours of pickling time. A neat tip for these pickles is to salt them before you brine. This step draws out excess water and causes the cukes to sweat like a Redcoat at the first sight of a Minuteman.
If you want to get really American, you’ll double this recipe and invite your neighbors over to join you. Happy Fourth!
Prep time: 20 minutes of work, up to 1 week of marinating.
